Hinesville Police investigating shooting

HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) - The Hinesville Police Department is investigating a shooting that happened outside of a Hinesville nightclub on Saturday night.

Hinesville Police Department Chief of Detectives Maj. Thomas Cribbs said a man was shot through both his legs while he sat in his car outside the Colleseum Sports Palace and Grill on East Oglethorpe Highway. A woman was also cut while inside her vehicle when gunshots shattered her car windows.

Then, just a few minutes later more shots rang out at a nearby Waffle House.

The man was treated and released from an area hospital. There is no information on the condition of the woman.

Police say an automatic assault-type weapon was used and they say the incident appears to be random.
