Georgia man Wayne Anthony Hawes suspected of killing 5 in Georgia found dead

This case is not getting the same national attention as what’s happened in Ohio. 
Nonetheless, it’s just as horrific. 

Fox News reports a man who shot and killed five people during two separate shootings as part of a domestic dispute in Georgia was found dead in his home early Saturday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said.

The body of shooting suspect Wayne Anthony Hawes, 50, was recovered Saturday by authorities in his northeastern Georgia home, Columbia County Sheriff Captain Andy Shedd said in a statement. Shedd said the Friday night shootings stem from a domestic dispute that left three men and two women dead.

Sheriff deputies responded to a home on Johnson Drive about 7:54 p.m. Friday and discovered three victims - a man and two women. At 8:32 p.m., authorities responded to a second crime scene on Washington Road where two other victims, a man and a woman, also were found.
