Authorities say two officers have been wounded in a shooting south of Atlanta, where police have poured into a neighborhood and blocked off roads.

Grady Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Denise Simpson says the two injured Henry County officers were being treated there Thursday afternoon. Simpson said she was unable to discuss the severity of their injuries.

The circumstances of the Thursday morning shooting were not immediately known. Henry County police said the scene was in Stockbridge. The city is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of Atlanta.


The Georgia Department of Transportation said in a brief statement that it had been working to keep the northbound lanes of Interstate 75 clear as the injured officers were taken north to Grady.
