Neighbors calls 911 when they heard gunshots.“We had someone drive up and fire multiple rounds inside the house and struck and 8-year-old boy in the back,” Sgt. Scott McBride of the Fulton County Police Department said.Police said Ahijah Geffard was asleep upstairs when a bullet pierced through his bedroom. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. His condition has not been released.Detectives said they hope someone got a glimpse of the shooter or the car.“Unfortunately we’re still looking for someone that might have seen the vehicle and got the tag number,” McBride said.Detectives interviewed the boy’s mother, grandparents and sister, who were also inside the house. They were not hurt.
