Deputies found 20-year-old Donovan Munir Cason of Macon dead when they arrived. Medical personnel took 21-year-old Kabryan Johnson to a hospital, but WMAZ-TV reports he died in the emergency room from multiple gunshot wounds
Another victim, 21-year-old Fuquan Conner, is hospitalized in critical but stable condition. A woman was also shot. She was driven to a hospital in a personal vehicle and admitted.
