The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called in to investigate the deadly shooting of a 19-year-old at a Sumter County nightclub over the weekend.

On Saturday, June 15, Sumter County deputies responded to reports of a double shooting at the Low Key club on the 100 block of Main Street in De Soto, Georgia.

At the scene, deputies found 19-year-old Americus resident Destiny Adams and another victim shot. 

Medics rushed both victims to Phoebe Sumter Hospital for treatment, but officials say Adams was not able to recover from her injuries.

An autopsy has been performed on Adams' body at the GBI Medical Examiner's Office in Macon.

The investigation into Adams' death remains ongoing.
