Three men shot in Rex, one dead

Posted: Updated:

Clayton County police officers are investigating a triple shooting in Rex that left one man dead.

Three people were shot in the wood line behind a Texaco in the 6000 block of Highway 42.

Police say all three were shot just after 8 p.m. Investigators said two men were transported to Atlanta Medical Center. One victim was transported by ambulance, the other by helicopter.

"Officers responded to shots fired at this location where they were directed into wood lines," Sergeant K. T. Hughes with Clayton County Police said.  "At this point, we have no motives, no suspects." 

The trail where the men were shot leads to a mobile home park behind the Texaco.

"This is very unique," Hughes said. "I don't know any incident that has happened in the wood line or in this area in a while that is this severe."
