UPDATE: Teenage girl shot in head

 By Christian Jennings - bio | email

ALBANY,  GA (WALB) –  A 19-year-old girl was shot in the head early Wednesday morning at a west Albany apartment complex.

Jasmine McCreary was taken to an Albany hospital for treatment.

Albany police have arrested Dantevius DeAndre Pryor, age 21. He's been charged with Aggravated Battery, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony.

Albany police arrived at Westwood Apartments unit 73 around 1:00am.

We talked to several people who live at Westwood Apartments who say it's usually a safe place.

"It's kind of surprising to me. I didn't think anything like that would happen over here," said apartment resident Gregory Brantley.

Police say Jasmine McCreary is not from Albany.

We'll have more on this story as new information becomes available.
