GAINESVILLE - Gainesville police said Friday morning they are continuing a search for the person who shot a man during an altercation on West Avenue Thursday afternoon.
Gainesville Police Cpl. Kevin Holbrook said when officers arrived at the scene they found a male victim who had been shot in the abdomen.
"As for the number of times the individual was shot, that information is unknown," said Holbrook.
Holbrook said the victim was transported to the Northeast Georgia Medical Center, where he underwent surgery, but he did not know the condition of the victim.
The suspect fled the scene in an unknown vehicle, according to Holbrook.
He said the crime was not believed to be random in nature, and he thought the two people involved in the incident knew one another.
