DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A gunman has shot seven people, killing five of them, in a subdivision west of Atlanta.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Lt. Glenn Daniel said authorities received a 911 call Saturday reporting a shooting on Willow Tree Circle in Douglasville around 3 p.m.

Daniel said five people were killed, including several children.

The gunman was among those injured. He was taken a hospital.
