Seven people were shot, five killed, including the suspected shooter and his 7-year-old daughter in a Douglasville, Ga., subdivision on Saturday afternoon.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports a neighbor, Angela Ansah, described the shooter as a “mysterious” man. Andrew Ansah told the newspaper that “a neighbor tried to intervene when the dad chased the mother and daughter outside but could not stop him from shooting the two.”
The man reportedly shot two adults, including his ex-wife and two children. He later died at an area hospital. Two other children were wounded in the shooting.
Douglas County Chief Deputy Stan Copeland told WSB-TV: “We had multiple victims shot in the street.” He added, “Some of those are siblings, so some (of) these (people) are related. We just don’t know who is who right now.”
The shooter’s sister earlier said, “My brother should never had had a gun.” The identities of the victims and the shooter have not been released.
