Authorities have identified two women killed Wednesday in a shooting at a Hall County home as a 50-year-old and her adult daughter.

Anne Marie Wilson and Lauren Wilson, 20, were shot to death at their home along Broome Road in eastern Hall County during what investigators determined was a double murder and attempted suicide, the sheriff’s office said Thursday.

A family member checking on the victims discovered three people with gunshot wounds and called 911 about 3:20 p.m., authorities said.

The gunman was later identified as 26-year-old Shamiek Johnson, who had a child with Lauren Wilson, investigators said.
