The bullets went flying shortly before 1:30 p.m. in the parking lot of a strip mall in Pooler, which is about 10 miles west of Savannah. 

The victim, a male, was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition, police said. 

The Pooler police department has deployed a K-9 unit and a helicopter to search for the suspect, a spokesperson told Fox News.
