Geneva police spent Thursday working two shootings that have landed several people behind bars on numerous charges.

Investigators say the shootings are a result of a previous altercation weeks ago.

The first shooting happened near Wiregrass Medical Center after two men got into an argument. That led to James A. Mulkey Elementary School being placed on a soft lockdown.

Later a second shooting took place on Morris Street. Police say it was between friends of the people involved in the first shooting.

Investigators say at least 15 shots were fired and that many went through nearby homes. Fortunately, there were no injuries.

Geneva police have three men in custody and a fourth person could also be arrested. The names of those arrested have not yet been released.

The charges include assault second degree for running someone over, shooting into an occupied dwelling and persons forbidden to possess weapons.
