Teen dies after shooting on Thanksgiving; another teen arrested, charged

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A juvenile is facing murder charges after a domestic situation led to a fatal shooting on Thanksgiving.

Forsyth County sheriff's officials said they were called to the 1200 block of Wondering Way in the Riverbrooke subdivision for a domestic issue, during which one teenager shot another inside the home.

Family members at the home told sheriff's officials that they knew the shooter, and that he took a 2-week-old baby with him. He is believed to be the baby's father and police said the mother lived at the house.

"I think it's more like a friend of a friend they meet at this house. Whatever reason the gun comes out and the person was shot," said Doug Rainwater with the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.


The 18-year-old victim was taken to the hospital and later died.

The suspect was arrested a short time later on Grey Rock Way. Sheriff's officials said he is a juvenile.

Police said they returned to the neighborhood Friday and found the handgun they believed was used in the shooting.
