ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities in Georgia are searching for a person who’s accused of shooting a woman in the face and neck at an off-campus student apartment.

A report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says 18-year-old Shantell Washington was lying on the kitchen floor when police arrived Tuesday night. Washington was taken to a hospital.

News outlets report Washington was visiting a friend at the WestMar Student Lofts.
