JACKSON, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say a teenage was killed and three other teenagers were injured during a drive-by shooting at a graduation party in central Georgia.
Butts County Sheriff's Department Maj. Darrell Powers tells local news media report that 16-year-old Cederrius Hastings was shot to death Saturday morning after multiples shots were fired from at least one vehicle. Powers says there was an exchange of gunfire between people in the car and others in the yard.
The motive of the shooting is unclear.
Police say the two other teens, one female and one male, were being treated for serious injuries at a local hospital. The other injured teen has been treated and released.
The party was in celebration of the Jackson High School graduation ceremony, which went on as planned Saturday evening.
