Four people were shot early Thursday in a home invasion in DeKalb County, police said.

The shooting happened about 2 a.m. at a townhouse at the Terraces on Terrace Trail, which is off Snapfinger Woods Drive.

“Five armed gunmen entered the location brandishing firearms, ” DeKalb police Lt. Rod Bryant said.

Two of them were shot. Two people who live at the townhome were wounded during the shooting, too. Another resident was injured after jumping through a window. All were taken to a local hospital. Of the four people shot, one was in serious condition, Bryant said.

A 13-year-old child inside the home at the time of the shooting was not injured, Channel 2 Action News reported. The whereabouts of the others who allegedly forced their way inside the townhome were unknown.

“The investigation is ongoing and this appears to be drug-related,” DeKalb police spokeswoman Shiera Campbell said.
