At about 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Clemmons said, his office received a call reporting that someone had been shot at 776 Green Lake Road. Deputies found a male victim in the yard there, Clemmons said without releasing the man’s identity.

The victim was airlifted to an undisclosed hospital and is in stable condition, he said.

Chief Deputy Mark Gulledge declined to comment on whether anything had been stolen from the residence.
