Newnan Police officers rope off the scene where a shooting incident took place Wednesday morning at the intersection of Hill Street and Hatcher Street. There were no injuries, but a car was struck.


A man and a woman suspected in a shooting incident in Newnan Wednesday morning have been taken into custody.

There was no one injured in the shooting, said Deputy Chief Rodney Riggs with the Newnan Police Department.

Around 11:30 a.m., shots were reported near the intersection of Hill Street and Hatcher Street near Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Newnan, and officers responded to find one vehicle had been hit at least once. No bullets were found to have struck the nearby home, Riggs said.

The suspects fled the scene before officers arrived, but within 10 minutes, they were pulled over and taken into custody on Cityview Drive off East Newnan Road, Riggs said.

He was not able to say what charges were placed against the male and female suspects. Their names were not released. 

The investigation of the shooting is ongoing, Riggs said.
