1-year-old hit by stray bullet; 2 others injured in South Fulton shooting

Three people, including a 1-year-old boy, were shot early Friday morning at a South Fulton apartment complex, police said. 

Officers responded to the triple shooting at the Hickory Park Apartments shortly after midnight, according to South Fulton police spokesman Lt. Derrick Rogers.

Investigators at the scene in the 4900 block of Delano Road learned there was an argument about a burglary at one of the apartments inside the complex.

“The argument became very heated, and at some point gunfire erupted resulting in the three victims receiving a gunshot wound,” Rogers told Channel 2 Action News in a statement.

The others are stable at another hospital, Lt. Marcus Dennard told Channel 2 from the scene. Their injuries are not considered life-threatening. 

Police said they have identified at least one shooter, but he is not in custody at this time.
