It’s unclear the exact house it was.

VPD officials said they’re working with the district attorney’s office on the case.

Police said there is nothing at this time showing the victim was shot intentionally.

WALB reached out to District Attorney Brad Shealy and he couldn’t share much because it’s still pending and being investigated.

Shealy said anyone at least 16-years-old can be charged as an adult.

But for this case specifically, they have to wait for the facts on what happened before deciding and because they are underage, WALB doesn’t have their identities.
