Police are working to determine if a Wednesday night shooting at a southwest Atlanta apartment complex is connected to a triple shooting at the same complex last month.
A woman told Atlanta police she and her four children had to take cover Wednesday when someone opened fire on her ground-level apartment in the 300 block of Fairburn Road. There were at least 20 shots fired through a door and a window, Channel 2 Action News reported.
She told officers she was asleep in a bedroom around 6:10 p.m. when she heard the first shots, and she hurried to make sure her children, ages 5 to 14, were safe.
“There were no injuries reported as a result of the shooting and no other units appeared to have any damage,” police spokesman Officer Jarius Daugherty told AJC.com.
The single mother told Channel 2 that after last month’s shooting and the Wednesday night scare, she no longer feels safe living at the Providence at Cascade Apartments, where she has lived for more than a decade.
On June 12, three teenagers were injured when a dispute in a common area of the complex turned violent. A 19-year-old man was shot in the hip, a 14-year-old boy was shot in the lower back and a 15-year-old victim was shot in the arm and buttocks.
