Police: 5 dead, including gunman, in Georgia shooting

DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (AP) – Authorities say five people are dead, including the gunman, after a shooting in a subdivision west of Atlanta.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Lt. Glenn Daniel said authorities received a 911 call Saturday around 3 p.m. reporting a shooting in a Douglasville subdivision about 20 miles west of Atlanta.

Daniel says the gunman shot six people before fatally shooting himself. Daniel says the two surviving victims are children, but children are also among the dead.

Investigators have not released the names of the suspect or the victims because their family members have not yet been notified. The motive of the shooting was not immediately clear.
