No deputies were injured. A man who was involved in the domestic incident sustained minor injuries before the deputies arrived at the scene, the post said.

Body camera footage of the shooting will be released after the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, which is investigating the incident, has a chance to review it, the sheriffs office said in another Facebook post Monday afternoon.

Authorities did not immediately release the races of those involved.
