Man shot in chest at north Forsyth home
Officials: Shooter and victim know each other

NORTH FORSYTH – A man has been shot in front of a north Forsyth residence and sustained life threatening injuries, according to authorities on scene.

Cpl. Robin Regan, a spokesman for the agency, said an adult male was transported to an area hospital Thursday with a gunshot wound in his chest, and the apparent shooter is being questioned on scene.

Multiple calls came from the residence, which is between Dr. Bramblett and John Burruss roads, just before 5 p.m. Oct. 6.

The incident occurred in the front yard of a home.

“Deputies immediately made contact with the [adult male] shooter,” Regan said.

He said the two men know each other, but that any other identifying information, including whether they are related, their ages or whether either or both of them live in the home, are being withheld until families can be updated to the situation.

It was not immediately clear whether alcohol and/or drugs played a factor in the shooting, though an investigation is ongoing.

Only local traffic is being allowed on Memphis Street at least for the next couple hours, Regan said. Karr Road is not affected.
