THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - An 18-year-old woman whose car broke down early Sunday morning ended up getting shot outside of a Waffle House.

Thomasville Police say a group of men in two separate cars were driving down East Clay Street about 12:30 am when they started throwing bricks and bottles between the cars.

They pulled over at the Waffle House off U-S Hwy 19 and the fight escalated. They started shooting.

One of the bullets hit an innocent bystander, 18-year-old Kira Hentley, who says she was just waiting for a ride.

"Her vehicle had broken down and she was there in the parking lot waiting for some help to get her vehicle fixed where she could leave. And she was just there and just in the wrong place at the wrong time," said Melvin Johnson with the Thomasville Police Department.

The woman was released from the hospital and is going to be OK. Police haven't made any arrests yet but say they know the names of at least two of the suspects.  Feedback
