The Newton County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a shooting at 8571 Eloise Lane. Deputies found Sarah Tyminski, 32, dead from a gunshot. They also found Chris Lamb, 35, with a gunshot wound and he was taken to an area hospital.

Authorities took a 58-year-old male into custody in connection to the incident. He was also treated for a gunshot wound. Investigators believe this started as a dispute over a custody issue.

“There were witnesses to the incident and all the witnesses seem to be in agreement to how it happened, so we will be bringing charges against the 58-year-old white male,” said Chris Jennings, Newton County Sheriff.

The investigation is ongoing. Sheriff Jennings expects to release additional information soon.
