COWETA COUNTY, Ga. — Multiple members of the Ghostface Gangsters have been convicted in the murder of a 14-year-old Newnan girl during a home invasion.
Haley Adams was shot to death on Feb. 11, 2020 after a group of three men and a woman broke into the home she had just moved into with her mother on Bethlehem Church Road.

The group was targeting the owner of the home who was not there during the invasion. Instead, they found Adams’ mother and “tormented her at gunpoint” while Adams hid in her bedroom.
When the men realized the target was not at home, they ran outside. Adams ran after them with a BB gun and one of the men opened fire on her, shooting her in the back. She died later that night.
