DeKalb police Capt. Stephen Fore said police responded to a call at 9:20 a.m. about a person shot at the Aspen Woods Apartment Homes in the 3300 block of Flat Shoals Road, just south of The Gallery at South DeKalb mall.
“They arrived at the scene and saw two victims, a 21-year-old who was shot in the stomach, and a 17-year-old who was shot in the hand,” Fore said.
Fore said the victims’ injuries are believed to be non-life threatening. During the investigation, Fore said police determined that the shooting stemmed from an incident that happened two hours before the shooting.
“An altercation between teenagers, possibly related to bullying,” he said.
Fore said a hand gun was used in the shooting. The suspect fled the area in a vehicle and police are searching for him.
“We believe we do know who that [suspect] is,” he said. “We’re working now to verified that identity and locate that individual.”
Nearby Flat Shoals Elementary School was placed on lock down while police searched for the gunman.
