GAINESVILLE - Gainesville Police said two female victims, both adults, suffered gunshot wounds during an incident at Atlanta Street Apartments around 3:00 p.m. Friday.<br /> <br /> Gainesville Police Corporal Kevin Holbrook said both victims were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, one in apparent critical condition.<br /> <br /> "We were given a description of an individual believed to be a suspect. Officers were able to gather in the area. Shortly after that, a deputy with the Hall County Sheriff's Office was able to locate a possible suspect," Holbrook said.<br /> <br /> He said that suspect was taken into custody without incident <br /> <br /> Holbrook said officers initially located the victims outside of the apartments close to an apartment with a large crowd.<br /> <br /> "Of course, we had to deal with that leading into the investigation," Holbrook said.<br /> <br /> He said the large crowd gives investigators a number of people to talk with, prolonging the initial investigation.<br /> <br /> He said the number of gunshot wounds the victims suffered is unknown.<br /> <br /> "They did appear to be shot in the upper torso area. That's currently the only information we have as far as related to their injuries," Holbrook said.<br /> <br /> The suspect and victim names have not been released.
