In the days following the incident, Peachtree City investigators were able to develop leads based on information from the crime scene and witness testimony. Warrants were obtained for the three offenders, and all were arrested on authority of the warrants and transported to the Fayette County Jail, said Public Information Officer Captain Rosanna Dove.

At approximately 10:24 p.m. on July 13, officers with the Peachtree City Police Department responded to a possible home invasion with shots fired inside a residence located at 203 Woodland Drive, Peachtree City. At the time of the incident, three residents were at the home.
Two men entered the residence through an unlocked door and once inside ordered the female victim to relinquish money. Statements indicate that the offenders carried shotguns and believed there was a sum of money inside the residence the victim had access to.
There were two other male residents at home during the incident. One resident was in an adjacent bedroom, and came into the living room after hearing the commotion. As he did, he was confronted by one of the offenders, who pointed a shotgun at him directing him to the living room floor. While this was taking place, the female victim fled from the residence but was pursued by one of the offenders. The offender fired a round from a shotgun at the victim. The victim was grazed on her head by a pellet as she continued to flee from the area. She was able to run to a neighbor’s home where she summoned help.
