Police Investigate Domestic Dispute

About 4:45am this morning, dispatchers received a call from an apartment complex on King George Boulevard regarding a fight between two men over a woman. The first Chatham County officer to arrive spotted a man jump out of a pickup and run.

After a short foot chase to a self-storage business, the officer had to use pepper spray to stop the suspect. In the process, the officer was also sprayed. Both were treated by EMS at the scene.

Meanwhile, officers went back to the apartment complex where they found the man's truck with a shotgun in the back. Police say it appears the man fired into the ground, but they have called out detectives and forensics officers to determine what really happened.
