Bartow County Deputies were dispatched Planters Drive in Cartersville Saturday to a shooting. Reports said that when they arrived law enforcement officers waited for backup units due to an active shooter. At that time, a complainant came running out of the residence screaming for help. While approaching the residence, officers noticed several blood trails and pools of blood on the front steps. Law enforcement entered the threshold of the residence and noticed Jason Mcginnis lying on his back grabbing his legs towards the left in the foyer area. Ronald Nalls, another victim, was on his hand and knees at the foot of the stair towards the right about a foot from McGinnis.
The complainant stated that McGinnins and Nalls told a black male shot them. Both victims answered the door when the gunman answered appeared and a verbal argument ensued, followed by gunshots.
Both males were transported to Atlanta Hospitals to receive medical treatment.
