Two people were killed and two others wounded in a shootout Sunday night in Cobb County.
So far, police have not released the names of the victims or a motive. And as of Monday afternoon no one has been arrested in the shooting, which happened shortly after 6 p.m. at 2103 Cardell Road near Austell, according to Cobb County police.
At 6:19 p.m., someone called 911 to report shots being fired in the 2100 block of Cardell Road, police spokesman Officer Mike Bowman said. Within a couple of minutes, a second person called to report people being shot inside a home at 2103 Cardell Road, Officer Bowman said.
“I heard one shot out here, neighbors down the street said there was about six or eight shots,” witness Julia Biddy told Channel 2 Action News, according to a media report.
When officers arrived on the scene, they found two men dead inside the house from apparent gunshot wounds, Officer Bowman said. In addition, two other men had to be hospitalized due to injuries they received after being shot.
Biddy said she went to the aid of one wounded man, according to the news station.
“He was in pretty bad shape,” Biddy said. She said she was putting pressure on the bleeding man’s wound when a man drove up in a gray Hyundai and asked about a black bag at the scene.
“Give me that black bag, give me that black bag,” Biddy said the man told her. “He said, ‘that’s my partner.’ “
She said the man in the Hyundai loaded the bleeding man, and the black bag, into the car and left the scene. Bowman said a K-9 unit was brought in after the shooting.
Police did not release any details on the circumstances surrounding the shooting and it was unclear who lived at the home. The coniditions of the wounded men were not immediately known Monday
