Officers were dispatched to a disturbance of the peace call before 10 p.m., according to a release from the Warner Robins Police Department.
“A caller advised there was a large party in the area and could not navigate the roadway of the neighborhood,” the release said.
After an officer arrived, a suspect began firing a weapon from a car and struck several people, police said.
One victim died while being treated at Houston Medical Center, the release said. Four others are being treated for non-life threatening injuries at two hospitals — one in Warner Robins and the other in Macon, police said.
“The scene is active and victim information will be released at a later time,” the release said.
An investigation is under way, but no suspects have been named, authorities said.
Warner Robins is about 100 miles southeast of Atlanta.
