Police are searching for a man in his 50s after four people were gunned down and killed in Hampton Georgia.

Authorities told WSBTV that they’re looking for a shooter in the area of McDonough Street.

They described the shooter as a black man in his mid 50′s who is five feet, 10 inches, and was wearing a dark shirt with a red tone and grey long pants.

He was last seen in a black 2017 GMC Arcadia with a tag number of DHF756.
