A man and woman were injured in a double shooting that happened Friday in Gwinnett County. A day later they were still searching for the shooter as well as trying to determine what happened.

The investigation began around 8 p.m. when officers responded to the Gwinnett Square Apartments on Satellite Boulevard after getting a report of shots fired in the area, according to Gwinnett County police. An officer conducting an unrelated traffic stop on Satellite Boulevard had reported what he believed to be several gunshots coming from the apartments, police spokesman Officer Jeffrey Richter said.

Once on the scene, officers found the man and woman in a vehicle at the Preston Park Apartments, Richter said. Both were suffering from gunshot wounds to the legs, he said.

Both subjects were transported to Gwinnett Medical Center for treatment of their injuries, Richter said. Their conditions were not known Saturday and police have not yet released their identities.

Man Robs Hotel at Gunpoint

Police are searching for a man who robbed a Bibb County hotel at gunpoint Saturday.

No one was injured in the armed robbery, which took place after at 8:47 p.m. at the Red Roof Inn at 3950 River Place Drive, according to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators said the suspect approached the clerk and demanded money while brandishing a black handgun.

After the clerk complied, the suspect ran from the hotel with an undisclosed amount of cash, the sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Clay Williams said.

The suspect is described as a dark-skinned black male in his early 20’s, Williams said. The man was approximately 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighed around 120 pounds, officials said. The suspect was wearing all black with a mask and gloves.

Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect is urged to call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at (478) 751-7500 and ask for an on-call investigator, or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at (877) 682-7463.
