FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) -

Police are waiting on autopsy results in hopes of answering questions about a deadly shooting.

One woman was killed and a man was wounded when multiple shots were fired on Sunday.

Police say it appears to be a murder-suicide attempt, but they won't know for sure what happened until they get autopsy results or they can speak to 23-year-old Dekito Champ, who most know as "Kito."

Investigators discovered a new shell casing at the home where Dekito Champ and 22-year-old Jana Watson were both shot.

The shooting happened around 2 p.m. Sunday outside a home in Fitzgerald.

"Several neighbors heard the gunshots, I'm not exactly sure who called 911," said Police Chief William Smallwood.

According to investigators, 23-year-old Dekito Champ suffered three gunshot wounds to the chest.

"He is still in intensive care, on a ventilator at this time," Smallwood said.

The woman, 22-year-old Jana Watson from Atlanta, who police say was Champ's ex-girlfriend, had at least two gunshot wounds.

"From what we have gathered and the information from the family, she was down here to pick up her dog and take it back to Atlanta," Chief Smallwood said.

Police are waiting for Champ to recover and be able to speak to get more of the story.

"He was in the ambulance and on the way to the airport to be life-flighted when I arrived, so no one has had a chance to talk to him at all," Smallwood said.

He said until they get Watson's autopsy results they won't know for sure if it was a murder-suicide attempt, and they won't say who they think fired the shots.

Meanwhile, anyone saw anything that hasn't come forward, is asked to call police.

"If there is anyone else out there who witnessed it, we would sure love them to give us a call, and hopefully give us some information," Smallwood said.
