Georgia High School football player and three other teens arrested on gang related murder charges
Two teenagers were left to die in a shooting at a Sweet 16 birthday party in Georgia, and now police are making arrests. The sad thing is the two people killed were not even the intended targets. Over 100 people were in attendance, but the two people shot were both innocent bystanders. Both Ajanaye Hill,14, and Samuel Moon,15, were killed, with seven other teens injured.
According to police, four teenagers were arrested and one of them was a very popular offensive lineman named Chance McDowell for New Manchester High School.
The others arrested were, Chance Terrell McDowell, 17; Timothy Coleman Jr, 18; Kingston Cottom, 17, and Chase Terrence McDowell,17.
Police are now claiming it was a gang related incident.
It’s unclear who fired the fatal shots, but all four teenagers are charged with two counts of mass murder, nine counts of aggravated assault, and seven counts of aggravated battery. Other charges are pending including participation in gang activity.
The families of both teens that were killed have set up GoFundMe accounts for Hill and Moon.
Please keep the family and friends in your prayers during this tough time.
