    ATLANTA - Police are investigating a shooting at a house in downtown Atlanta which injured a woman.

    Investigators tell Channel 2 Action News that the mother of the late rapper Bankroll Fresh was also inside the home. She was not hurt.

    Her niece, identified as 24-year-old Amanda Weaver, was grazed by bullets to her shoulder and leg while in her bedroom. She’s expected to be OK.

    Atlanta police said someone used an assault rifle late Monday night and fired more than a dozen rounds inside a house on Smith Street.

    "It's really a senseless act," Atlanta police Capt. Andrew Senzer said. "A complete disregard for human life."

    Neighbors described hearing the moment shots rang out.

    "As soon as I put the key in the door, it was just like several shot and I was like, 'Oh, my god', and I immediately just jumped to the floor. It was just awful," said Bri Banks.

    Bankroll Fresh, whose real name was Trentavious White, was 28 when he was killed during a shootout outside Street Execs Studio in northwest Atlanta two years ago.

    Channel 2’s Audrey Washington spoke with a family member about if this shooting was related to the shooting death of the rapper.

    “We can’t say that, we can’t say that. They’ll probably be some more stuff, we don’t know,” said the family member.

    Police said they will not speculate if the shooting Monday night had anything to do with his murder.
