Arrest made in quadruple shooting that injured 2 teens in DeKalb neighborhood

Two teenagers were among four people injured Tuesday after gunfire erupted during a fight in a DeKalb County neighborhood, police said.

Officers were called to the 500 block of Pennybrook Lane at about 5:40 p.m., but only one gunshot victim remained at the scene. A woman in her 40s was grazed by a bullet while inside her home, police spokesman Lt. Shane Smith said, and she declined to be taken to a hospital.

“She stated that she observed a large group of juveniles in a fight in the middle of the street when she began to hear gunfire,” Smith said. “She was grazed by one of those bullets.”

Nearly five miles away, near the intersection of Memorial Drive and Village Square, officers said they were able to stop two vehicles that fled after the fight. In the vehicles were a 16-year-old and a 19-year-old who told officers they were shot at Pennybrook Lane, according to Smith. They were taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

Another man eventually arrived at a hospital and said he had been shot at the same location, Smith said. His injuries were also not life-threatening.

That man was later identified as 26-year-old Mariceo Godwin, police said. He was booked into the DeKalb County jail about six hours after the shooting and charged with aggravated assault, according to jail records.

Police told Channel 2 Action News the brawl began with two women attempting to fight one another. Godwin is accused of firing a gun several times, striking the three other victims. It was not clear how he was injured.
