The Georgia Department of Natural Resources said in a news release that a K9 officer named Rio helped uncover a rifle and other evidence leading to the suspect’s arrest.

The hunters called authorities after seeing muzzle flashes across the swamp in Bleckley County, and bullets striking the water in front of them.

Warden Jason Bennett searched the area and encountered an unarmed man emerging from the woods.

The man denied involvement but was detained while Bennett requested assistance. DNR Corporal Keith Page arrived with a K9 officer named Rio, who located a 30-30 caliber rifle in the bushes at a nearby pond.

Official: Base shooter watched shooting videos before attack

  Official: Base shooter watched shooting videos before attack The Saudi student who fatally shot three sailors at a U.S. naval base in Florida hosted a dinner party earlier in the week where he and three others watched videos of mass shootings, a U.S. official told The Associated Press. Officials investigating the deadly attack were working to determine whether it was motivated by terrorism, while President Donald Trump indicated he would review policies governing foreign military training in the United States. Investigators believe the gunman visited New York City, including Rockefeller Center, days before the shooting, a U.S. official told The Associated Press on Sunday.

Rio was then led on a track from the pond to the swamp and uncovered three spent shell casings from a 30-30 rifle.

The DNR did not identify the suspect or offer further details, citing an ongoing investigation, but said the suspect “will face a multitude of charges.”

NEW YORK (AP) — The rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was sentenced to 2 years in prison Wednesday for his entanglement with a violent street gang that fueled his rise to fame, but was spared a much harsher possible sentence because of his extraordinary decision to become a star witness for prosecutors. The 23-year-old performer, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, could have been sentenced to decades in prison for crimes that included orchestrating a shooting in which an innocent bystander was wounded. He pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges accusing him of joining the gang known as Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
