Annie Ruth Weems was sitting in a chair in her bedroom around 4:45 a.m. when a shot was fired into the family’s southeast Atlanta home on Clifton Road, according to police. Weems was in stable condition Wednesday night in the intensive care unit at Grady Memorial Hospital, Weems’ daughter Tracy Hester said. Doctors have not yet determined if Weems will undergo surgery to remove the bullet, which entered her right cheek and was lodged in her left cheek.
No one witnessed the shooting, police said. But Hester said her family suspects an ex-boyfriend of a relative. Investigators went to the apartment the relative shared with her ex-boyfriend and found it trashed, Hester said. A window had been shot, she said.
