ATLANTA — A teen girl is dead and a gunman is on the run following a shooting in southwest Atlanta on Thursday evening.
Atlanta police swarmed a home along Greenleaf Circle after someone called 911 to a report a shooting.
“When they arrived, they found a juvenile teenage female has been shot,” Capt. Reginald Moorman, with the Atlanta Police Department, said.
Detectives said they found the teen sprawled out on the floor of the home’s garage around 5:30 p.m.
“We are trying to work leads and talk to neighbors to see exactly what happened,” Moorman said.
Investigators have released few details about the shooting. Family and friends told Channel 2's Nefertiti Jaquez that they were too upset to talk about the shooting on camera.
Jaquez’s sources told her the 16-year-old victim was critically injured after being shot in the chest while visiting her boyfriend’s home.
