Atlanta (CNN) — A sheriff’s deputy was shot at a courthouse in north Georgia’s Forsyth County on Friday morning, CNN affiliate WSB reported, citing police.

Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Robin Regan didn’t confirm the report to CNN, but said the office did respond to a “shots fired” call
Friday morning, and that the scene “is now secure.”

A witness, Alan Neal, said he was at an intersection in front of the courthouse in Cumming when he heard gunfire.

After he heard “two or three pops,” he saw deputies fire on someone in front of the courthouse, Neal said.

Neal said he saw people tending to someone who appeared to be injured, and police dragging someone else at the side of the courthouse.

Cumming is about 35 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta.
