When a deputy arrived at the gated community around 9 p.m., he met with Frasca and then followed him to a home. As the deputy walked up the driveway, a 13-year-old girl came out onto the front porch with a handgun and started shooting multiple times, hitting Frasca.

The deputy returned fire, shooting the teen.


The 13-year-old, who hasn’t been identified, was taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta with non-life-threatening injuries. Frasca was taken to Grady Hospital, where he was stable.

It’s unclear how Frasca and the teen are related or if the girl will face any charges.
