School Police say the four drove up and down Lippitt Drive past the school several times, when they stopped and started to argue with several students.

Dougherty County School Police Assistant Chief J. C. Phillips said "They got surrounded, out numbered is what it is. So to kind of fend them off is whey they fired the round."

Two hours after the shooting the four were arrested on Colquitt Avenue, where Investigators found the gun and marijuana. Police say the four suspects are members of the Southside Bloods, but and gang charges are pending as the investigation continues.
