Police believe the suspect, Wayne Anthony Hawes, started shooting after he found out his wife was divorcing him.
Four people are believed to have died at the scene, while another was taken to the hospital and died there.
Columbia County Coroner Vernon Collins is working to confirm their identities, with all five bodies set to be taken to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab, AP reported.
