POOLER, Ga. (WTOC) - Two people are dead after a shooting Monday afternoon at a home on Longleaf Circle in Pooler.

Officers arrived at the home around 5:20 p.m. to find a stepfather and son suffering from gunshot wounds.

Emergency crews on scene worked to provide assistance, but 48-year-old Kevin Fields died at the scene.

The other man, 67-year-old Hazel Ellison, was taken to Memorial Health where he later died as a result of his injuries.

Investigators found that Fields, the stepson, was shot and killed by Ellison, the stepfather. Police say Ellison killed himself.

Pooler Police say that only one report in the past two years was on file for the home, and that call was not domestic in nature.

Detectives are working to establish the history between the stepfather and son to learn more about the events leading up to the shooting.
