Cobb County police arrested four Marietta people Wednesday in connection with a home invasion that left two injured.

According to police, Martin Barnes, 26, and Devito Young, 25, walked into a home about 11:15 p.m. Tuesday along the 300 block of Windy Hill Road and started fighting with someone.

“As a result of that confrontation, one person was shot and others were arrested,” Cobb police spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce told Channel 2 Action News.

Young had injuries to his head and Barnes was shot in the back by another person inside the home, police said. They were treated at a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Barnes faces aggravated assault and weapons charges. Young faces a weapons charge.

Police did not say if those inside the home were injured and did not release their names. They believe those involved may have known each other, Channel 2 reported.
