Teen injured in shooting on Glover Circle

by Wes Mayer

A 17-year-old man was injured in a shooting Thursday night, and is now recovering at Atlanta Medical Center.

Around 5 p.m., authorities with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 100-block of Glover Circle near the intersection of Welcome Road and Franklin Highway in reference to a shooting, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office.

The victim was transported to AMC by helicopter. Yarbrough did not identify the victim.

According to Yarbrough, the case is still under investigation and there are a lot of unanswered questions. Investigators are still working on the cause of the shooting.

A relative of the victim contacted The Newnan Times-Herald and said the victim walked in on a home invasion when he was shot twice.
