Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that 15-year-old Carlos Davis was shot in the stomach while hanging out at a friend’s house on Sunday night. Police reported there were around four other kids inside the home when the shooting occurred.

“He was inside of a bedroom with three or four other males, and at some point, a gun in the bedroom discharged,” Atlanta police Lt. Carven Tyus told WSB. “There was one shot fired, based on what the witnesses inside that house told us.”
