Investigation underway in Tift County double shooting

Posted: Updated:

Two people are hospitalized with gunshot wounds tonight after a domestic violence shooting an apparent attempted murder/suicide.

36-year old Darby Hall was shot repeatedly inside her home on Jack Bankston Road in Tift County Friday morning. Amazingly, she survived but is in the hospital. Her former boyfriend, Kyle Larson, shot himself once. He too, remains hospitalized.

Just a few weeks ago, the two involved in the shooting were enjoying time at the beach, now those same two people are in hospitals, where they are both seriously wounded.

It was a shocking scene for neighbors to wake up to,"Oh I was real surprised," said Jimmy Grubbs, who lives nearby.

What's normally a quiet neighborhood, a section of Jack Bankston Road, was covered with police cars and crime scene tape.

The Yellow crime scene tape stretched around the home of 36-year old Darby Hall as investigators spent hours collecting evidence in what appears to be an attempted murder suicide..

Darby Hall's friends say she'd recently broken up with Kyle Larson and he was living and working in Panama City.

After the shootings, a white mustang with Bay County, Florida tags was found behind Darby Hall's house. Investigators loaded it onto a flatbed tow truck and hauled it away.

In the meantime, neighbors say they are hoping for the best. Friends tell us Darby has two sons and they were at school when the shooting happened. We are told they are with their father right now.
