A 26-year-old man was arrested early Sunday morning in connection with a shooting in South Forsyth County that left another man in critical condition.

James Adam Dunleavy has been charged with aggravated assault, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

He is being held in the Forsyth County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.

According to Rick Doyle, director of operations for the sheriff’s office, Dunleavy is suspected of shooting a 28-year-old man in the Twin Lakes Mobile Home Park at 3300 Shore Drive, where he lives.

The 28-year-old, whose name has not been released while authorities work to notify his family, was taken to North Fulton Hospital in critical condition, according to Doyle.

In response to reports of gunshots, sheriff’s deputies went to the mobile home park off of Ga. 9 about 12:30 a.m.

When they got there, Doyle wrote in an email, they “heard a woman screaming and located a white male lying on the ground between two mobile homes. Deputies immediately secured the scene and located a Glock 9 mm semi-automatic handgun on a nearby picnic table.”

According to Doyle, Dunleavy told deputies he was the gunman.

It was not immediately clear what caused the confrontation. The investigation is continuing.
