A recent Georgia high school graduate died on Thursday after someone fired a gun into her home — killing her while she slept, officials said.
Jessica Daniels, 18, was shot while in bed in her Atlanta home around 5:30 a.m. Authorities arrived on scene to find the woman with a gunshot wound to the chest, and say she was the unintended target of a shooting that occurred nearby.
Daniels’ family told investigators they heard three shots fired outside their home, WAGA-TV reported. A witness said she heard “boom, boom, boom, boom” before getting up to investigate the commotion when they “saw lights flashing.”
