A woman in her early 20s was shot and killed early Friday morning following a card game in the 900 block of Whippoorwill Way in Hinesville.

Cribbs said an argument broke out between two men around 3 a.m. Eventually, a gun was pulled and one man was hitting the other with it when the pistol discharged and the bullet hit the woman in the head.

Cribbs said she was taken to Liberty Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
