Richmond County deputies are looking for dozens of people to question after a shootout leaves a young woman in critical condition.

It happened early Monday morning at a gas station on Tobacco Road, near Windsor Spring Road.

Authorities say a group of about 50 people leaving a night club gathered outside of the gas station and started fighting.

It ended with about 40 rounds of gunfire.

An 18-year-old woman was struck in the back. She's now in critical condition.

Investigators are not sure if the woman shot was with one of the groups involved or if she was a customer.

Deputies say the shooting may be gang related. They're using gas station surveillance video to help the investigation.

If you have any information, please call the sheriff's office.
