JEFFERSON - A Jackson County woman is in critical condition after she was shot in the head over the weekend.<br /> <br /> Jackson County Sheriff Janis Mangum says deputies responded to a call around 9 p.m. Friday from a woman who was requesting help.<br /> <br /> "At that time, we weren't sure what we had," Mangum said<br /> <br /> Upon arrival at a home on Albert Lane, they found the female caller and a man deceased from apparent self-inflicted gun shot wounds, according to Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Mike Ayers.<br /> <br /> "A white male, identified as Brendon Kemp was found deceased at the scene," said Ayers. "It does appear at this time that Brendon died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head."<br /> <br /> Ayers said his body was sent to the GBI crime lab Decatur for autopsy.<br /> <br /> Mangum said Kemp was the son of the female victim. "The female subject was transported to Athens Regional Medical Center where she remains in critical condition from a gunshot wound to the head," she said.<br /> <br /> The GBI is working the investigation jointly with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.<br />
