ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Police in Athens are searching for a suspect they say fired shots into a crowd of people.

Athens-Clarke police say three people were wounded in the shooting early Sunday morning.

Police say they're seeking a specific person -- a 20-year-old man -- who is wanted on aggravated assault charges.
