Deputies are investigating a possible shooting that was reported early Thursday morning in the Lake Dunlap area.

The Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office received a call about 2:40 a.m. for a possible disturbance in the 1400 block of Potthast Drive.

“The caller stated that a male individual had been involved in an altercation and was possibly shot, but had left the location on foot,” a release from the Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office stated.

When deputies arrived they found evidence that a gun was fired, however, there was no victim, the statement said.

“Witness statements on scene indicated that the victim had possibly been struck by the round,” the release read.

The sheriff’s office sent out an emergency notification to alert nearby neighbors of the incident and to keep an eye out for suspicious activity or people, the report stated.

Investigators said the possible victim was described as a white male wearing a white tank top and khaki shorts, with short blond hair, 5-foot 9-inches, 150 pounds and heavily visible tattoos.

Guadalupe County Sheriff's Lt. Clint Garza said deputies found the person they were looking for Thursday afternoon in the area of Potthast Drive. The man was unharmed, Garza said.
