DOUGLAS, Ga. (WALB) - An argument between a man and his girlfriend led to a barricade situation, according to the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office.

Lt. Jerad Horton with the sheriff’s office said the suspect has been arrested and a woman was airlifted to a hospital after she received what deputies said could be a life-threatening wound from being shot.

Horton said they were called to a shooting incident around 4 p.m. on Clyde Kirkland Road and the suspect barricaded himself inside the house.

The standoff lasted for about two hours, Horton told WALB News 10.

SWAT officers were called, but Horton said sheriff’s officials talked the suspect into surrounding peacefully.
