Police: 14-year-old fatally shot through apartment floor

November 20, 2018

ATLANTA (AP) — Police in Georgia say a 14-year-old girl has been fatally shot at an apartment complex.

News outlets quote Atlanta police Officer Stephanie Brown as saying that officers responded to the apartment Monday night and found the teen dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

She says investigators believe the single gunshot came from an upstairs apartment, went through the floor and struck the girl. She says the girl was visiting a friend.

Police say it’s too early in the investigation to determine if the shooting was accidental. WSB-TV reports authorities later responded to another fatal shooting at the complex in which a 21-year-old woman was found shot in the head.

Investigators were still on the scene early Tuesday.
