The shootings of three people that occurred early Wednesday morning in Broxton were apparently the result of an ongoing domestic dispute.
Broxton police and the GBI continue to investigate the incident, but have released few official details.
Mother and daughter Mary and Jerrilynn Myers each sustained gunshot wounds during the incident, which occurred in the area of Hunter Ln. in Broxton. Another individual, identified as Dustin Steverson, was also injured and is believed to be the primary aggressor.
Douglas Now has learned that Steverson was recently arrested for terroristic threats against Jerrilynn Myers, but was released from jail after being granted a bond from a Coffee County magistrate judge.
Jerrilynn Myers and Steverson remain hospitalized; the extent of their injuries has not been disclosed at this time.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation issued the following statement Wednesday afternoon:
