Police in Towns County say a man showed up at the Blairsville home of his estranged wife and three children, and shot another man in the face on Monday night.
According to police, the suspect held his estranged wife and three and kids hostage. They say a fight apparently broke out, and the woman was able to escape while the children got out through a bedroom window and ran to a neighbor's house to call 911.
When police arrived at the scene, they made sure the mother and children were safe. In the meantime, they say the suspect took off into the woods. Canine units were called in, and the suspect was later caught.
The shooting victim has been released from the hospital, but he has not been identified. The incident remains under investigation.
