DeKalb County police looking for man who shot teen in face

Posted: Updated:

DeKalb County police are searching for a man they said shot a 15-year-old in the face inside his home.

The shooting happened just after 2:30 a.m. Friday on Hillcrest Drive in the DeKalb section of Atlanta.

Investigators told CBS Atlanta early Friday morning they aren't sure why the teen was shot.

Detectives also said the shooter and the victim know each other and had spent the day together.

At the time of the shooting there were several people in the home but none knew what led to the violence.

"The individuals inside the house were aware of what went on after it happened," said Crime Investigation Divison Capt. Frank Braun.

DeKalb County police are actively searching for the shooter.

The victim is in very critical condition.
