A deputy responded to the 5100 block of Heath Creek Road at about 1:30 a.m. Thursday for a report of a car accident in the area.
When the deputy arrived on the scene, he said he met up with other emergency personnel, and he observed two people working to move the wrecked vehicle from a creek bed.
Shortly after his arrival, the deputy said he heard two gunshots that came from very near the scene of the wreck. The deputy traced the shots to a trailer on the other side of the creek, and he talked to the homeowner.
