A male victim was shot in the leg Tuesday night in the area of City Park in Gainesville, according to the Gainesville Police Department.

The victim was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, said police department spokesman Cpl. Kevin Holbrook.

Police responded shortly after 10:30 p.m., Holbrook said, and were investigating the shooting and circumstances leading up to it, along with Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

Law enforcement was “searching for any individuals who might be involved,” Holbrook said.

The shooting “does not appear to be random,” he said, noting “individuals were possibly actually at the park together.”
