They were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment. One of the three injured youths was grazed by a gunshot, according to police, who declined to provide further information on their health.
We are aware that there was some sort of social media argument that developed into a shooting, Mr. Hampton Jr. added.
The other group then opened fire after one group of people entered the residence carrying guns. It was accurate to describe the incident as a gunfight, he claimed, because “several persons were firing.”
Authorities claimed there were numerous shooters, though they do not immediately know how many.
Mr. Hampton Jr. stated, “I detest being here while discussing children and gunfire. “Our youngsters simply have access to far too many firearms.”
According to the police, at least two of the victims were pupils at Atlanta Public School.
Mr. Hampton Jr. stated that this time should be used to prepare for the holidays. “At least two families will be making funeral arrangements,”
