HOMER - The Banks County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's help in identifying those responsible for a pair of Independence Day shooting incidents.
Late Monday afternoon, Banks County Sheriff's Office released details of those incidents.
According to Sgt. Carissa McFaddin, deputies were called to a location on Georgia Highway 198 in Franklin County at 12:03 a.m. Friday regarding a shooting that occurred at 4464 Highway 198 (Patel's Grocery) in Banks County.
Preston Green, 22, of Lawrenceville told deputies he and friends met with acquaintances in the parking lot of Patel's Grocery at Georgia 198 and Georgia 63.
A physical altercation ensued, and Green told deputies he then was shot, McFaddin said. Green, his girlfriend, and a male friend left and hid at an unknown residence in Franklin County.
"As Green and his friends were attempting to hide, the offenders shot at their vehicle then fled from the residence," McFaddin said.
Deputies are seeking information about those involved in the shooting.
McFaddin said the shooter is described as a light-skinned black male, 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, with short black hair and a full beard.
The female accomplice is said to be a white female with black hair, 5-foot-4, 130-140 pounds, McFaddin said.
The male accomplice has the nickname of "Red", but no description was given, McFaddin said.
All are believed to be from the Toccoa area, she said.
Anyone with information regarding the incidents is asked to call Banks County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 677-2248.
