Dayuuuuum! Is anything safe for teens these days??
Gwinnett County Police continue to investigate a late Saturday night shooting at a Sweet 16 birthday party at which four teens were shot and one was grazed by shrapnel.
The shooting happened at about 11 p.m. at a home on Lock Ness Lane in unincorporated Gwinnett near Snellville. Police said an individual began to shoot “randomly” into the house where the party was being held and about 50 people were in attendance.
The youths, only one of whom was injured seriously, according to police, were taken to Gwinnett Medical Center, treated and released. The teens, ages 15 to 17, were shot in the leg, foot, arm and buttocks.
Investigators said they have not identified the shooter and hope that the victims can give them more information.
There may be a connection to gang activity and drug activity, but no solid connections can yet be made, police said.
Descriptions of the suspect were so varied that investigators have not been able to focus on one suspect, police said. No one at the crime scene was able to provide names of possible suspects or describe a vehicle that might have been involved, they added.
SMH. Sidenote: we’re really gonna need Gwinnett County, GA to get it together.
