The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a shooting at 25A Pine Hill Lane, in Palm Coast, that left one man injured with a gunshot wound to the face.
Deputies responded to the call at 2:58 a.m. Sunday after receiving multiple calls of shots being fired in the Pine Hill Lane neighborhood.
According to investigators, a birthday party with as many as 75 to 100 people in attendance was being held at the above location, when several gunshots were heard outside in front of the residence.
A 19 year-old man, identified as Johnnie Thomas Jr., of Bunnell, was shot once in the face.
He was taken by private vehicle to Florida Hospital Flagler, where he was treated and later released.
Investigators have just completed interviewing a number of witnesses who were at 25A Pine Hill Lane when the incident occurred and wish to speak to anyone else that may have been at the party.
“This was a reckless act of violence which endangered the lives of many. Incidents such as this need to stop before innocent lives are lost,” said Flagler County Sheriff Jim Manfre.
