14-year-old charged in Cobb Co. double murder

By The Associated Press
POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) Police now say they believe two men were killed in a park northwest of Atlanta during a weekend drug deal.

A 14-year-old boy is being held on charges of felony murder and aggravated assault in connection with the Sunday night shooting. It happened at the Wild Horse Creek Park Sunday night in Powder Springs, a Cobb County community about 20 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta.

An arrest warrant obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution states that the boy took money and marijuana from the men during a drug transaction. Killed were 21-year-old Sterling Hargrave and 23-year-old Terrance Banks.

The Associated Press typically doesn't identify juvenile crime suspects.
