Police tell WSFA that they responded to a call of shots being fired on Monday at 5:44 p.m. at a residence in the 100 block of County Road 18. Officers who responded to the call came into contact with a 26-year-old female, at the scene, who was suffering from a single gunshot wound to her leg. The victim was occupying a 2000 Ford Crown Victoria, stopped in the vicinity of the 3200 block of South College Street. The victim was treated at the scene and then transported to the EAMC Emergency Room for additional treatment. The victim has since been released from the hospital.
Auburn police began an investigation into the incident, which resulted in 27-year-old Kelvin Hill being identified as a suspect.
