ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Four teenagers were arrested and face charges in connection to a shooting that left two people including a teenager injured late Monday evening in Carroll County, according to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.

Police responded to the area of North Gate Court and North Gate Drive after reports of a shooting around 11:50 p.m. Upon arrival, deputies found a 16-year-old girl and a 20-year-old man with gunshot wounds. The girl was rushed to an Atlanta hospital, and the man “refused medical treatment on scene,” deputies say.

According to investigators, a group of young adults and teens were “hanging out when shots rang out.” Investigators are collecting evidence and are aware that Fairfield is a gated community and are working closely with the apartment staff during the investigation.

Police say 17-year-old Christopher Ryan Williams Jr. was the only teenager who was identified. All four teens who were arrested face aggravated assault charges.
