ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Police in Athens are searching for a suspect they say fired shots into a crowd of people.

Athens-Clarke police say three people were wounded in the shooting early Sunday morning.

Police say they're seeking a specific person -- a 20-year-old man -- who is wanted on aggravated assault charges.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/TY9qNv) that officers were dispatched to the location on Deer Parkway after someone reported hearing shots being fired.

The three people who had been shot were taken to a hospital by others at the scene when the gunfire happened. Information on their conditions wasn't available early Monday.
