Roswell police have arrested a South Carolina man accused of being connected with a shooting Sunday afternoon.

Officials say at around 2:20 p.m, the city's 911 center began receiving multiple calls from the area of 1500 Martin Road reporting gunshots. Witnesses told officers that the suspected shooter and fled into a nearby apartment complex, and that the possible victim had left the area in a vehicle.

Officers were able to identify the suspect as 21-year-old Tristan McGill of South Carolina and take him into custody. On his person, police say they found a handgun that had been reported stolen out of South Carolina.

Around the time of McGill's arrest, officials say an unidentified 22-year-old male victim arrived at a nearby hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his leg.

Investigators believe McGill and the victim know each other and that are no other suspects.
