Police said a large group of minors got into a dispute shortly after they were escorted out of Atlantic Station for curfew violations and unruly behavior.

According to authorities, Charles was with the suspects who started shooting at another teen. It’s unclear if Jackson was the intended target.


“Everyone involved yesterday was a teenager, and we recovered three handguns from this location. Handguns in the wrong hands leads to tragedy,” Chief of Police Darin Schierbaum said.

On Wednesday, Atlanta police released video showing the group of teens they are searching for. Police said they believed that two of those teens were the shooters and said they would like to identify the rest of the group as witnesses.

Police said the teen in the black and yellow sweatshirt and a boy in a blue sweatshirt with white and black writing on the front fired the gunshots that killed both Jackson and Charles.
