Cartersville Police responded to a domestic disturbance at 64 Ann Circle on Thursday night at around 9:21 that ended up becoming a shooting.

As soon as officers arrived at the residence, a male exited the front door and reportedly opened fire upon them both, striking the officers’ patrol vehicles several times but not hitting the officers. Officers returned fire, striking the male several times and one other person inside the home.

Both subjects received immediate medical aid and transportation to Piedmont Cartersville Medical Center for their injuries. Cartersville Police requested an independent investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Cartersville Police will be conducting a separate internal investigation into the incident.

They are not releasing additional information at this time.
