According to Ocilla Police Chief Billy Hancock, officers responded to an 11 p.m. Friday call that three people had been shot at Nautica's Hot Spot, an entertainment center at the north end of Ocilla's Quick Stop building.

"We are not sure, clearly, as to the circumstances of the shootings," Hancock said. "There was arguing between two individuals and shots were fired."

Hancock said Nautica's Hot Spot is an entertainment center with electronic games, pool tables, light food and beverages.

Reggie O'Neal, 20, of Ocilla, died of multiple gunshot wounds shortly after arriving at the Irwin County Hospital. Anthony P. Thomas, 23, also of Ocilla, was transported to Macon Medical Center. Hancock said he was listed in stable condition there Monday. Jarmaine Carver, 18, also of Ocilla, was also transported to Macon Medical Center. Hancock said he has been released.

"They all scattered after the shootings and were transported to Irwin County Hospital by private vehicles," Hancock said. "They had left by the time officers arrived."

A handgun was used in the shootings but Hancock would not comment on what type

"We have several theories and are still developing leads in the case," Hancock said.
