Multiple firearms were discovered during the investigation, troopers later said.
The four people were described as armed and wearing dark clothing. The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office said they should not be approached if they are seen.
A reverse 911 message went out to residents in a 2-mile radius from the area asking them to secure their doors, stay inside, and remain vigilant as law enforcement searched the area, officials said.
