LITHIA SPRINGS, GA (CBS46) -

Douglasville Police said a man was shot in the arm after a struggle between an officer and the man Wednesday afternoon.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation, as well as DPD and the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, is on the scene of the officer-involved shooting in Lithia Springs. Witnesses said the person who was shot was naked at the time of the incident.

The person who was shot reportedly suffered non-life-threatening injuries and transported to the hospital for treatment Wednesday afternoon. They said their response followed a call from a neighbor about a suspicious person. 

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is also on the scene of the shooting on Preston Blvd. just off Interstate 20, west of Atlanta.

CBS46 has a crew on the way, and Chopper46 is set to fly over the scene for CBS46 News starting at 4 p.m.
