FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. - Lenny Washington was driving through downtown when he saw the incident unfold in front of the Forsyth County Courthouse. 

Washington heard shots, looked up and saw what he described as a puff of orange smoke.

He yelled at a woman, who was walking toward the courthouse, to run.

According to Washington, at the same time the woman began to flee, a man whose face was covered began firing a gun.

Washington did not know what type of weapon the man had, but said he was wearing some type of heavy vest and gear.

Authorities have extended the evacuation zone farther from downtown Cumming. Check back at for more.
