A second home just up the street also took gunfire, the news station reported, adding that one bullet hit a bedframe, narrowly missing a man as he slept.
Investigators believe Khamani Semaj Rhodes, 18, of Sugar Hill, was a victim in one of the shootings, Valle said. Several days later, Rhodes was driving in the area when he saw one of the people he suspected of shooting at his home, she said. He and another person, 19-year-old Willie Taylor of Buford, allegedly shot several rounds into the other person’s vehicle.
Police did not respond to a request to clarify the timeline of the shootings or if anyone was injured in either case.
Six arrests were made in connection with the shootings, police said. The investigation also led to additional arrests tied to other crimes, with investigators obtaining 73 felony warrants for charges ranging from aggravated assault and armed robbery to drug and illegal gun possession. Most of the suspects also face charges related to gang activity, police said.
“The Gwinnett Police Department’s priority is the safety of its residents,” Valle said. “Gang violence in our community will not be tolerated, nor will any activity that threatens the quality of life of our residents. Gun violence or any violence that harms the safety of our citizens and visitors are unacceptable.”
