Two men were arrested and taken to the Irwin County Detention Center, after investigators say they got into a shootout early Sunday morning.

Around 1:00AM, Jason Hollinsworth drove to Tyler Moncus's home at 635 Fillmore Road. The two got into an argument over a domestic issue.

The investigator said Moncus then shot at Hollinsworth with a 20 gauge shotgun, and put a hole in the door of his truck.

Hollinsworth drove off and waited on Hays Street nearby, where the shootout continued.

Investigator Stephen Rogers said Hollinsworth shot at Moncus five times with a pistol.

Luckily, no one was injured in the gunfire. 

Both are being held without bond on aggravated assault charges. Moncus is also facing a criminal attempt charge.
