TIFTON, GA (WALB) –Three people were gunned down in a hail of gunfire in Tifton.

All three of them remain hospitalized after that shootout at a mobile home park last night.

Tonight investigators are looking for the shooters they say used high-powered weapons.

It was a scene that drew a crowd, like Tift County resident Conorris Henley. "I heard basically boom boom boom boom," said Henley.

Investigators say three people were shot and wounded after 17 shots were fired into a home at the Golden Road Mobile Home Park.

42-year old Willie Edward Dillard, 41-year old Brett Alexander White, and 29-year old Adam Conley were all wounded.

The victims were taken to Tift Regional Medical Center, where one was later transferred to a Macon Hospital.

Investigators with the Tift County Sheriff's Office and GBI arrived at 320 East Golden Road Lot A-5 shortly after the 911 call came in around 10:30.

They spent more than 12 hours processing the scene and gathering evidence.

The Sheriff's office and GBI are still investigating this shooting. No arrests have been made, and investigators say they do not know a motive behind this shooting.

GBI agents believe all three shooting victims will survive their wounds.
