BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -  Just a block and half away from Bainbridge Public Safety Headquarters, investigators said two men drove up next to a home on Louise Street, and began to shoot.  

Ozzie Hallmon said she heard the gun shots around 3:30 a.m. Friday, leaving behind large bullet holes in her home's walls. 

“I heard five shots. I was scared.  I was so nervous and scared that I couldn't even call 9-1-1,” she said.  

Andre Gilyard was also inside the home at the time of the shooting. 

He said, “We just heard several shots, like four or five.  And my first instinct was to stay low. I told them to stay low.”

One bullet struck Gilyard's cousin 30-year-old Derrick Hallmon in the shoulder.  

Gilyard said, “By the time we made it to the kitchen, my cousin came in and said he got shot.  It's a flesh wound, luckily it wasn't anything more.”

Decatur county EMS responded and treated Hallmon at the scene. 

Witnesses said two suspects drove up on Japonica Drive in a gray Chevrolet Caprice. 

Investigators believe an argument that began Thursday night escalated and led to the shooting. 

Bainbridge Public Safety Investigator Chris Jordan said, “The suspect actually got out of the vehicle, stood in the road way, there were some words passed, and then the shots were fired.”

The victim gave a brief description of the shooter, saying he was a black man wearing a white t-shirt and shorts. 

Jordan said, “It puts everyone at risk.  You have people out there running around with weapons and firing at random.  It puts the whole community at risk.”

If you have any information, call Bainbridge Public Safety at 229-248-2038.
