Bulloch County Coronor Jake Futch confirmed two people died Friday night as a result of gunshot wounds but police have not yet confirmed if the deaths are being investigated as homicides.
Officers from the Statesboro Police Department and the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office responded to a disturbance at an apartment complex on the 200 block of South Mulberry Street in Statesboro shortly after 8 p.m. Friday. More than 10 law enforcement vehicles arrived on the scene as dozens of visibly upset neighbors gathered at their doors and in the streets.
Futch said a male and female were both shot and died as a result of their wounds. He said one victim died at the scene and the other at East Georgia Regional Medical Center.
Police at the scene would only say they are conducting a death investigation.
