The incident occurred Wednesday afternoon when a resident at 21 Highland Park Drive got into a verbal altercation with an unknown male in the front yard of the residence, according to Sgt. Greg Vansant with the Newnan Police Department.

The resident told police she was standing in her doorway when the unknown male pointed a firearm in her direction and fired, Vansant said. The man then got into his car and drove away.
