A Sunday night shooting that injured one man was drug-related, deputies with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies responded to a home on Tolbert Drive at Old Union Road at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday, according to the sheriff's office. Larry Germany told deputies he was inside his home when a man with a black mask tried to force his way into his home.

Germany was shot in the right forearm and was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center for treatment.

Deputies have not arrested a shooter, according to the sheriff's office, but they did arrest a man who was in the house at the time of the shooting.

Willie Samuels is charged with possession of cocaine and is being held at the Columbia County Detention Center.
