A Georgiana teenager finds himself in the Montgomery County Youthful Detention Facility after law enforcement said he fired shots into an occupied house last Saturday night. The shooting happened around 10:15 p.m. in the Cheatham Mobile Home Park on Abrams Street.
When officers arrived on the scene Saturday night, they found a large hole in the side of the house where a bullet had entered the side of the house and was lodged into a cabinet.
The victims notified police that they believed it was the teenager that lived next door.
According to Georgiana Police Chief Carlton Cook, the teenage suspect exchanged words with his neighbor outside and then fired from his front step in the direction of his neighbor’s house.
“We were told during the interview that there was a confrontation between the suspect and another adult victim,” said Chief Carlton Cook. “That’s the victim he was actually firing the weapon at, but he was inside the trailer at the time.”
One victim received minor injuries during the incident and was treated and released from the Georgiana hospital.
The teen, who is not identified because of his age, turned himself in the next day. He was questioned and interviewed and according to the chief, admitted to shooting several times in his neighborhood but not into his neighbor’s house.
