ST, MARYS, Ga. -- The search is on for a shooter accused of killing a man at his Georgia apartment on Sunday.

The St. Mary's police department says 22-year-old JePaul Maurice Mainor of Folkstonwas shot and killed at the Cumberland Oaks apartments on Mary Powell Drive.

Neighbors tell Action News he was living there with his sister.

The investigation found Shawvon Roberts, 24, and Paige Fellows, 24, both of St Marys, were returning to the complex from a nightclub in Kingsland.

As they walked toward their apartment, Mainor and two unidentified black men came from the woods and started shooting at Fellows and Roberts. Fellows
jumped into the bushes to avoid being shot, while Roberts got a gun from inside the car and started shooting at the other men.

The shooting was the result of a dispute earlier in the evening between Roberts and Mainor at the nightclub. Police say the investigation is ongoing and no criminal charges have been filed.
