Officers responded to the call of shots fired at approximately 6:00 Monday night. Upon arrival, they found 19-year-old Eric Foreman of Swainsboro had been shot in the back. He was transported by EMS and pronounced deceased at Emanuel Medical Center just before 7:00 Monday night.

Suffering from gunshots wounds were Derrick Smiley, Justin Canady, and Jamal Jenkins. Smiley, Jenkins, and Canady were all transported to Augusta for treatment.
