The Early County Sheriff's Office is investigating after shots were fired in a park Sunday afternoon.
Investigators believe it stemmed from a domestic violence dispute earlier in the week.
The argument escalated and that's when shots were fired at the basketball court on Rose Drive in Blakely.
An older man was shot in the leg. He was taken to the hospital but has since been released.
Investigators are still trying to figure out if the shots were fired in self-defense.
They suggest calling law enforcement before fights get violent.
"A lot of situations are unavoidable but a lot of situations are avoidable so just be aware of your surroundings and be prepared to call law enforcement at any time," said investigator Trevor Price.
Arrests are pending following the investigation.
