4 killed, including two young children, in Atlanta home shooting
ATLANTA — Authorities say four were killed, including the shooter and two children under the age of 10, in a domestic-related shooting at a suburban Atlanta home.
Forsyth County Sheriff Duane Piper says an uninvolved family member called 911 about 6 a.m. Wednesday to report the shooting. Deputies found one man and two children under the age of 10 dead from gunshot wounds. Another man and woman were taken to hospitals with gunshot wounds. Piper says the woman later died and the man is in critical condition.
Piper calls the shooting “domestic-related” and says it all took place inside the home.
He also says it appears all the victims lived at the home. Names haven’t been released.
He says a motive is unknown.
Previously, officials said the shooter was known to officers from past arrest.
The home where five people were shot in metro Atlanta is a modest, one-story, ranch-style residence — a contrast to the expansive houses surrounding it in the south Forsyth County suburb.
