Newnan Police officers rope off the scene where a shooting incident took place Wednesday morning at the intersection of Hill Street and Hatcher Street.


The shooting incident on Hill Street in Newnan Wednesday actually involved an exchange of gunfire.

The two suspects, Taurean Ka’von Morris, 19, and Aryana Jewel Morris, 18, were both arrested shortly after the incident and charged with aggravated assault.

According to officers with the Newnan Police Department, the victim of the shooting retrieved his handgun from inside his home and fired back at Taurean Morris, who shot at the victim using two handguns while Aryana Morris was driving the vehicle. There were no injuries to either the suspects or the victim.

The shooting occurred around 11:30 a.m. near the intersection of Hill Street and Hatcher Street. The area is just off Martin Luther King Jr. Drive southeast of downtown Newnan.

Officers were able to get a vehicle description of the suspects, and the vehicle was pulled over on Cityview Drive only a few minutes after the shooting.
