According to Mike Bowman, spokesperson for the Cobb County police, a female in her 20s was shot at the Shiloh Green Apartments, off of Walton Green Way, at close to 2 a.m. The victim was pulling into the apartment's parking lot in a grey SUV when the assailant fired shots close to the entrance gate. Bowman believes the incident happened after the victim and and another female got into some form of physical altercation.
“The altercation continued into the complex, where it went from a road rage incident to a physical altercation between the occupants of both vehicles. After the physical altercation, at some point, a gun was produced and a female was shot," Bowman said.
However, authorities have yet to say what caused the road rage or when and where it exactly began.
The victim, who has not been identified at this time, was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, with severe injuries. So far there has been no updates as to her current condition.
Police say the assailant may have been driving a black Ford Mustang. Someone driving a silver Chevrolet Cavalier is also being sought for questioning. The physical description of the assailant has yet to be released.
