A woman died after a shooting over the weekend in Brunswick, and two men are now in custody, authorities said Thursday.

Officers were on patrol shortly before 2:30 a.m. Saturday when they heard gunshots coming from a strip mall along Altama Avenue, according to the Glynn County Police Department.

A large crowd scattered as police arrived at the shopping center. Once there, officers found a woman in a vehicle with a gunshot to her head, police said.

The woman, who appears to be an innocent bystander caught in the crossfire, was taken to UF Health Jacksonville in critical condition. Police said the woman, who was identified as 33-year-old Kendrea Bacon, later died.

Police said they issued arrest warrants charging Jamar and Jeremiah Herrington with aggravated assault.

Jeremiah Herrington, 26, was booked Saturday into the Glynn County jail, and Jamar Herrington, 27, was booked Wednesday into the jail, records show.

Following Bacon’s death, according to the Police Department, the aggravated assault arrest warrants have been upgraded to murder.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Investigator Rod Nohilly at 912-554-7816.
