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.
