SUMMERVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Police are searching for a man in northwest Georgia after two people were shot dead at a home and a third was injured.

Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader tells local news outlets the shooting happened Tuesday morning southwest of Summerville.

None of the victims has been identified. The wounded person was taken to a hospital.

Schrader is warning area residents to beware of anyone on foot. Officials are also warning of a 2003 silver Honda Civic that may have crossed into bordering Alabama.

The sheriff isn’t saying what might have sparked the shooting.

Chattooga County Schools Superintendent Jared Hosmer says the district is contacting area parents to ensure someone is home before students leave buses. He says schools are also contacting parents of high schoolers who drive to school.
