Four Pleasant Valley teens on Tuesday remained at Coosa Valley Detention Center charged in connection with a shooting into a home on School Cutoff Road on Sunday, officials said.
Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade said Monday that the sheriff’s office received a call to 911 about gunfire at the home shortly after 4:30 a.m. on Sunday.
“Numerous rounds were shot into their home striking appliances and other household items,” Wade said. “The residents inside the home were luckily not struck.”
Wade said the father at the home suspected his teenage daughter’s ex-boyfriend was involved.
“Investigators were able to identify a 15-year-old juvenile that admitted to shooting into the residence as a favor for the ex-boyfriend,” Wade said.
That 15-year-old was charged with shooting into an occupied dwelling on Monday. Tuesday morning, investigators arrested three more teens in connection to the incident, Wade said.
The sheriff said the ex-boyfriend, whom the father initially suspected, was charged with conspiracy to shooting into an occupied dwelling. Another 15-year-old was charged with shooting into an occupied dwelling and the third arrested on Tuesday was charged with a probation violation for hiding the firearm used in the crime.”
“It is very disturbing that four teenagers conspired and assisted in the shooting,” Wade said.
Wade declined to name any of the teens due to their age.
