Gunman on the run after two shot at community pool, police say

DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. — Douglasville police are investigating a double shooting at a neighborhood pool.

Investigators said they were called to the pool at the Sweetwater subdivision off Preston Boulevard around 5 p.m. Tuesday for a report of a person shot.

When officers arrived at the pool, they found two people with gunshot wounds. Police said the shooter is still on the loose.

"When I looked outside and saw the guy go off to the car, then I got scared," a neighbor who asked to remain anonymous said.


Investigators told Channel 2's Alyssa Hyman the victims are in their teens or early 20s. One of the teens has non-life-threatening injuries but police said they were still working to get the condition of the second shooting victim.

"I saw detectives and police officers everywhere. It's crazy. It's just shocking," the neighbor said.

Police told Hyman they do not know what led to the gunfire but they do not believe this was a random shooting.

That doesn't bring any comfort to Dave Riley, who walks with his daughter near the pool almost daily.

"It's very scary for the sake of my daughter and me. We're not coming out the house until the situation is under control," Riley said.

Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to call Douglasville police at 770-920-3010.
