One man was killed in a shooting that injured three other people in two locations, Rome police said Sunday.
"It appears they got in an argument and a gunfight broke out," police Capt. Roy Willingham told the Rome News-Tribune.
Officers responding about 4:20 a.m. found 35-year-old Tamaine Deshaun McKnight of Rome dead in a parking lot at 510 Calhoun Ave. Two semi-automatic pistols were next to him, police said in a statement.
One of the responding officers saw a Jeep traveling at a high rate of speed toward Floyd Medical Center. Willingham said three people involved in the gunfight were in the vehicle.
Evanda Spivey, 38, of Rome, and Sammy Riles, 33, of Columbus, sustained leg wounds, police said, Both were treated and released. They told police they were running away when they were shot.
Ladory Robinson, 29, of Rome, was found at 21 Atteiram Drive shot "multiple times" and was taken to a hospital, the newspaper reported.
No arrests have been made.
Willingham did not comment on the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call investigator Tony Yarbrough at 706-238-5124.
