LITHONIA, Ga. - A 16-year-old shot in Lithonia Tuesday morning has died, but no charges have been filed.
Residents said the 16-year-old was left bleeding in a yard on Browns Mill Ferry Drive after the shooting around 3:15 a.m. Tuesday. The man police detained as a possible shooter lives across the street.
Two others are in critical condition.
“My wife and I were laying in the bed and we just heard something go, ‘Pow pow pow pow,’ and all of a sudden I just saw blue lights everywhere,” neighbor Horace Weaver said.
The call originally came in to police as a robbery, possibly involving drugs. For now, they are not sure who was being robbed, so no charges have been filed.
