14-year-old shot, killed in nearby Grantville

(Grantville, GA) — A Coweta County teenager was shot and killed inside her home during a break-in late Tuesday night.

The shooting occurred at a home in the 1500 block of Bethlehem Church Road in the nearby Grantville community in Southern Coweta near Interstate-85.

Reports indicate several suspects broke into the home and made demands before they started shooting. The 14-year-old female, identified late Wednesday as Haley Adams, was hit by at least one bullet.

She was taken to Piedmont Newnan Hospital where she later died. Law enforcement authorities spent hours processing the scene at the rural home.

Authorities say they are looking for a small, 4-door light colored vehicle in connection with the shooting that took place around 9:30 PM Tuesday evening.

According to a report from The Newnan Times-Herald, four suspects reportedly entered the home and made demands before leaving the home, according to the victim’s mother.

The suspects fired several rounds outside the home, striking the victim and back and fleeing the scene in a light colored 4-door passenger car, according to Col. James Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

The case is still under investigation and authorities are asking that anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of these subjects should contact the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office 770-253-1576.
