One person has been transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the arm after a dispute in Clermont.

Three people are in custody after a search of the area, according to Hall County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks.

Wilbanks reported a confrontation took place on Green Circle between a resident and an unknown number of armed people in a Chevy Tahoe SUV. Shots were fired and one male in the Tahoe was struck in the back of the arm and possibly in the back, Wilbanks said.

The vehicle fled to nearby Bradley Drive, where responding Hall deputies made contact. Three people ran off and were tracked by K9 police dog units. The suspects were found in a wooded area off of Steve Black Road, located by air by a Georgia State Patrol helicopter.
