Three teens injured in pair of unrelated shootings this week

Three teens were injured in unrelated shooting incidents on Monday and Wednesday, according to the Decatur Police Department. A 16-year-old male was injured in his arm during a drive-by shooting at 5:26 p.m. Wednesday in the area of Dunham and Packard streets, according to police, and two arrests were quickly made. The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening, police said. Police said witnesses provided descriptions of two suspects, whose vehicle was located minutes later in the 1200 block of West Green Street. Officers found the suspects nearby, positively identified them and made the arrests. The suspects, 18 and 17 years old, were taken to the Macon County Jail on preliminary charges of attempted murder. Police said the handgun used in the shooting was recovered during the investigation. On Monday night, two teen males were treated and released from Decatur Memorial Hospital after they were shot while they were sitting on the porch of a vacant house on Union Street. A 16-year-old male was shot in his left arm; a 17-year-old male suffered a wound to his right shoulder. The two males, along with two other teens who were on the porch with them, told police they heard gunshots while at a house in the 1300 block of North Union Street. “At some point, they heard shots fired near them,” Decatur Police Sgt. Shane Brandel said. “They realized they were being shot at. The victims said they then ran from the scene and that’s when they were shot.” The victims and their friends told police they didn’t see the shooter and didn’t know who shot at them. Other people in the area who heard the gunshots said they were unable to provide any information on the suspects. The incident remained under investigation.
