Valdosta - An early morning drive-by shooting injured a bystander.

Neighbors say a little after midnight, someone walked out of a house on Ponderosa Drive and fired shots at a car in the street. Someone in the car fired back, and one of the bullets struck a 16-year-old boy who was sitting in the house next door. The bullet grazed his forehead, but he wasn't seriously injured.

When police arrived at the home where they believed the shooter was, the occupants refused to come out, so police called in their tactical team. "We elected to use a couple of pepper spray canisters, threw them through a couple of windows, they ignited, letting off pepper spray and shortly there after, the occupants came out of the residence," said Lt. Brian Childress.

Police have the six people who were in the house in custody and are questioning them about the shooting.

They think the shooting may be gang-related.
