One hundred teenagers were packed into a suburban Atlanta home. Gun fire erupted. As reported, at least “two people were killed and six others were injured when gunfire erupted late Saturday night at a suburban Atlanta house party packed with more than 100 teenagers, according to law enforcement officials.” The names of the “two people killed were not immediately released, but parents of teenagers who attended the party wrote on Facebook that the deceased victims were teenagers.”

As disclosed by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, the shooting broke out about 11 p.m. at a home in Douglasville, about 20 miles west of Atlanta.” Aerial Gardner, who lives next door to the house where the shooting occurred, told ABC affiliate station WSB-TV in Atlanta “that she and her family heard the gunshots and took cover inside their home.”

Gardner elaborated: “My kids were on the floor. They were scared.” Gardner’s reaction was affirmed by other parents. “My child is traumatized. Her friends are traumatized. I am traumatized,” a parent of one of the partygoers wrote on Facebook. No information in this article indicates whether parents were at the home during the killings.

A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office provided the skeletal information that was then available. “We know that there was a house party where well over a hundred teenagers were attending. A confrontation occurred that resulted in two deaths and six injured from gunshots.”

No arrests were announced, and no arrests have been reported as of the time of the publication of this article. Discerning a motive “remains under investigation.” Sheriff’s investigators are asking anyone with information about the episode to contact them.
