TPD investigating shots fired at S. Pine Street over the weekend
The Toccoa Police Department was dispatched to 387 S. Pine Street this past weekend in response to shots being fired.
According to Toccoa Police Chief Jimmy Mize, officers arrived on scene Friday at 8:42 p.m. and discovered that it was a home invasion.
Mize says the male subject had been struck about the head with a gun and was bleeding.
The residence was cleared by officers and EMS was on scene to treat the injured male.
Officers notified the detectives of the incident and had them enroute to the residence.
Mize says the scene was secured and officers spoke with the victims and neighbors that witnessed the incident.
The victims told officers that the male subject was outside working on a vehicle when two armed men approached him with guns forcing him inside.
The two females were held by one of the gunmen while the other gunman took the male to the bedroom area and began hitting him with the pistol.
The suspect fired a round into the floor in the bedroom causing the other suspect to walk into the room.
Mize says, at that point, the women then ran out the front door and up the street.
As the women left, they saw a small silver car with possibly a Hart County tag with a subject in it.
The two men exited the residence and as the male victim tried to exit, the gunmen shot at the residence.
The GBI was notified for assistance in processing the scene and interviewing witnesses and victims.
Agents and detectives were on scene until 4:14 a.m. processing the scene and evidence.
The case is still on-going.
Mize is asking anyone with information regarding this incident to call the Toccoa Police Department at 706-282-3302.
