A second arrest has been made in the death of a 19-year-old woman who was hit by a bullet that came through the wall of her boyfriend’s Coweta County home.
Eric Snelling, 21, was taken into custody by the GBI and Newnan police on Tuesday in connection with the Dec. 30, 2018, shooting death of Aubria Foster, Newnan police said Thursday in a statement.
He was arrested hours after Denarvious Kizavion Carter, 19, was charged in connection with the same incident.
Their relationship to the victim is unclear.
Foster, a graduate of East Coweta High School, was sitting on a couch in the living room of her boyfriend’s home when someone outside opened fire, AJC.com previously reported. She was found unresponsive just after 9 p.m. at the home on Savannah Street, Newnan police said.
Foster was taken to Piedmont Newnan Hospital and pronounced dead.
Detectives determined someone outside fired multiple shots, leaving several bullet holes in the exterior of the home. Shell casings were found in the street.
The bullet that hit and killed Foster entered through the wall and hit the teen in the upper back and shoulder area, authorities said.
“I heard about six shots,” neighbor Jackie Berry told Channel 2 Action News. “We hear shots all the time, but nobody getting killed.”
Police told Channel 2 that several people were inside the house at the time of the shooting.
Carter and Snelling are each charged with one count of murder and five counts of aggravated assault. They are being held in the Coweta County Jail.
