Early Sunday gunfire across Lake Peachtree leaves questions

The Fayette County 911 center received numerous calls during the early morning hours of Oct. 27 reporting multiple gunshots around Lake Peachtree in Peachtree City.

The shooter remains unknown, but police did confirm that one of the bullets penetrated the exterior and wall of a residence on Lakeaires.

The multiple gunshots occurred at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Oct. 27, with at least one resident reporting what sounded like automatic weapons fire totaling approximately 30 rounds.

Peachtree City Police spokesman Mark Brown said officers were dispatched at approximately 3:30 a.m. to complaints from Willowbend, Lakeside and Pebblestump Point residences but were also unable to locate the source of the disturbance, reports said.

Brown said the Fayette County 911 center received approximately 30 calls reporting the gunshots while Peachtree City Police received a call later that day in reference to a bullet which was found to have penetrated an exterior wall and interior wall in a residence on Lakeaires.

Officers determined it to be a .223-caliber round. The bullet appeared to have impacted the house at a downward angle, according to reports.

Residents of the home said they heard a loud party during the previous night, though they were unable to determine the source of the noise, according to reports.

Good job, Mom!

Damn, staggering around in a toy store? I like her Halloween mask though, that face would stop a clock.

Other shots fired

I think it was the 20th of Oct. I called 911 and reported shots fired near the lake. It sounded like others had reported same as the dispatcher said units were en route. These were at 1:30 am. There was a total of 8 shots that night.

Drunken jerks

with firecrackers and a gun. Look at the rental houses in that area. Or maybe a golf cart party, apres World Series game.

Additionally, why wasn't the alert system used for this at the time it happened or at least when the bullet was found?

I bet they catch them

They will pinpoint the house by week end. Probably an angry Red Sox fan.

But with all jokes aside, they need to throw the book at those morons. Someone could have been killed.

h&f I thought

of that, but with all the years of history we have tolerated, we can take the loss without resorting to violence. At least for game 3.

Me, at 3:30am? I was all tucked in dreaming of the duck boat parade.:)
