Atlanta Deputy Police Chief Charles Hampton Jr. said the shooting began as an argument on social media that escalated into a shooting when a group of teenagers armed with firearms entered the apartment complex.
He said: “I hate talking about kids and gunshots here.
“All we ask is that parents know where their children are, know what they are doing, check rooms.
“There are just too many guns in the hands of our youth.
“As I said a few weeks ago, this should be a time when we are getting ready for the holidays, but we have at least two families who will be planning funerals.”
