Henry County – (WDNews) Authorities had a significant law enforcement presence in the area of Ash Drive and Kirkland Street in Abbeville. Residents were urged to use caution while traveling through this area as SWAT and K-9 units tracked two juvenile male subjects reported to be armed.

The increased police activity was in response to a shooting that occurred earlier on South Dale Court. Authorities asked anyone with information to call 334-585-3131 or 911. The investigation was ongoing, with more information to be released as it became available.

The subjects were reportedly on foot near the old Dothan High School in Dothan. Henry County units detained the person who dropped them off in Houston County.

Despite efforts from the Henry County Task Force, Dothan PD, and the Houston County Sheriff’s Office, the suspects were not located. Authorities identified both individuals and planned to obtain warrants for their arrests.

An official press release on the incident was expected later today.
