On Tuesday 5/23/2023 at approximately 2322, I was approached by [VICTIM #1] at 1201 W TAYLOR ST, Food Depot, which is located within the City of Griffin Spalding County Georgia, which she stated that she was shot at.
She stated that she left work at Mcdonalds on Taylor St and was heading to Liberty Gas Station on Taylor St. She stated that a newer model Nissan Sentra (white) shot her vehicle in the area of North 13th St and W Slaton St. She stated that she does not know who shot at her nor why they would be shooting at her.
She stated that while she was traveling North on N 13th St shots were being discharged and two of the shots hit the rear of her vehicle (Blue 2011 Chevrolet Traverse GA Tag [REDACTED]). She stated that while she was in the vehicle, she had her three children inside the vehicle as well ([REDACTED BY AGENCY], [REDACTED BY AGENCY] and [REDACTED BY AGENCY]). She stated that she does not know the price of the damages.
I observed two entry points on the back of the vehicle and what appeared to be a graze from a bullet on the left side of the vehicle.
Inv Carnegie and Inv Williams were notified and the scene was turned over to them upon their arrival.
I was later informed by Inv Williams that [VICTIM #1] was infact not driving the vehicle at the time, that she was picked up at Mcdonalds when she got off work by [VICTIM #2]. I was informed that the graze on the side of the vehicle was from [VICTIM #2] when he returned a single shot back at the vehicle.
I was informed by Sgt Manolis to have [VICTIM #1]’s vehicle towed to the PD for processing. Marks arrived on scene and towed the vehicle to the PD parking lot.
I was later informed by Ptl Samuel that another vehicle was struck during the incident at [100 BLOCK] N 13th St. Ptl Samuel stated that the vehicle was a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze (White GA Tag [REDACTED]) belonging to [VICTIM #3]. Ptl Samuel informed me that the driver side front and rear window was damaged and estimated the damage at approximately $300.
All further investigation was turned over to CID.
