It's tempting to think of photoionisation as the photon coming in like a billiard ball and knocking out an electron. However this is a very misleading representation of the process.
A gamma ray is poorly modeled as a photon or photon(s) because the energy in it is delocalised. If you wanted to use a photon description you'd have to treat the ray as a superposition of photons in different positions. No doubt it can be done, but it's far easier and physically more appropriate to treat the gamma radiation as a wave.
Also, we think of photoionisation as ejection of an electron from a specific atomic orbital. However the electron correlations in atoms mix up the orbitals so strictly speaking an atom that contains more that one electron does not have distinct atomic orbitals. Instead we have a wavefunction that describes all the electrons and isn't separable.
So before the interaction we have a wavefunction describing the gamma radiation, and a wavefunction describing the atom. As the two interact they become entangled and we can not longer describe them as separate objects. Instead we have some bigger wavefunction describing the combined system. After the interaction we have some final state, e.g. an ion and free electron, that again are described by wavefunctions. The probability of any particular final state is calculated using Fermi's golden rule.
This may seem an awful lot of waffle, but the point is that the gamma ray doesn't interact with a single electron but with the whole system. So it's quite reasonable to expect final states that include a doubly charged ion and two free electrons. And indeed this process does occur and is called double ionisation.
However the energy exchange between the gamma ray and the perturbed system always occurs in units of $h\nu$ i.e. an integral number of photons. The obvious case is simple ionisation where a single free electron is generated with kinetic energy equal to $h\nu$ minus the binding energy. However it's possible to have two photon ionisation where the KE minus binding energy is equal to $2h\nu$.
