ATLANTA — The daughter of a northeast Georgia man suspected of shooting five people to death before killing himself says her father was a "ticking time bomb." Lauren Hawes told The Associated Press on Saturday that she, her mother Angela Dent and her 1-year-old daughter hid in a neighbor's house — barely escaping with their lives — while her father, Wayne Anthony Hawes, 50, went on a bloody rampage and killed five people, including her grandmother and cousin. "He made threats before, but we never thought it would be at this capacity," Lauren Hawes said.
