After they began yelling for the person to come outside, two people from inside came out and said the person that they were looking for was not at the house. At that time one of the men opened fire with a handgun.

Two people inside the house were injured in the shooting. A female suffered a hand injury and was taken to Memorial Hospital in Bainbridge and a man was Life Flighted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

A Glock .40 Caliber Pistol and a .380 Semi-automatic used in the shooting have been recovered.
