GAINESVILLE, Ga. -

Police in north Georgia say they're searching for a man and woman after a gun battle involving police officers.
  
Gainesville police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said Saturday that two officers were hurt in the Friday night confrontation, but neither officer was shot.
  
Holbrook tells The Times of Gainesville that both officers were treated at a hospital for minor injuries and have been released.
  
A 911 caller said the man was dragging the female down the road, and the first officer to arrive began fighting with the man. Police said the woman struck the officer in the head with a gun before the shooting began.
  
Police said the man and woman, both 20, are suspected of aggravated assault on a peace officer.
  
Gainesville is 45 miles (72 kilometers) northeast of Atlanta.
