Home Struck By 100 Rounds In Thanksgiving Day Attack

Four people were injured when a gunman or gunmen fired upward of 100 rounds into a rooming house in DeKalb County, Georgia in the early hours of Thanksgiving morning, WANF in Atlanta reported.

DeKalb Police officers responded to a location on Cascade Manor Drive in Decatur at about 2:50 a.m. on Thanksgiving where four victims ranging in age from 37 to 57 had been hit by gunfire.

The four victims were taken to nearby hospitals with injuries described as non-life-threatening.

According to 11Alive, the property is a rooming house, not a single-family home.

Three others living in the rooming house were not hurt in the shooting, according to DeKalb police.

In a statement on Thanksgiving, the DeKalb Police Department said that based on its initial investigation, the people were all inside the rooming house when a suspect or suspects fired more than 100 rounds into the building.

One of the victims told WANF that he was asleep in bed with his girlfriend when the shooting began. He was struck in the leg and his girlfriend was only grazed.

The same victim spoke with 11Alive and described the shooting as sounding like fireworks, with bullets being fired “back to back to back.”

DeKalb police said the incident is under investigation and asked anyone with information to come forward.
