A third person has died following the Aug. 27 triple shooting that happened in Chattooga County. 

Daryl Lee Marsh, 46, died early Thursday morning in a Chattanooga-area hospital after battling injuries that were caused by the shooting. 

Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader said that Steven James Mauldin is still in custody and will face additional charges. 

On Aug. 27, Mauldin shot three people, killing a mother and son, and shooting Marsh before fleeing the scene and starting a manhunt in northwest Georgia and parts of Alabama. 

Authorities also reported that Mauldin had driven to Norcross to kidnap his ex-girlfriend. He then allegedly drove her to Alabama at gunpoint. 

The shooting happened at about 8 a.m. on Aug. 27 before deputies were called to a home near the Floyd and Chattooga County line. 

Joe Edward Brown, 35, and his mother, Linda Mae Everett, 61, died as the result of the shooting. Marsh was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries following the shooting. 

Mauldin fled the scene was spotted near Moody, Alabama, according to local authorities and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. 

Mauldin was arrested the day after the shooting took place in Coweta County after a brief chase with a number of responding agencies. 

Before Marsh died, Mauldin was originally charged with two counts of murder, one count of aggravated assault, theft by taking and felony firearm possession in Chattooga County. 

Schrader added Thursday that Norcross police will likely charge Mauldin with charges related to the kidnapping. 

Schrader said that Marsh died at about 2 a.m. Thursday.
