Georgia polices say a man suspected in two shootings that left five people dead has been found dead with what appears a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Captain Andy Shedd with the Columbia County Sheriff’s office says the suspect’s body was recovered Saturday. Shedd says the Friday night shootings stem from a domestic dispute that left three men and two females dead.

Columbia County Coroner Vernon Collins says three people were shot at one location in Appling, two of whom died at the scene. The third died at the hospital. He says two other people were shot dead at another location about a mile away.

Identities of the suspect and victims were not immediately available.
