Teenager shot in the face, neck; shooter sought

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities in Georgia are searching for a person who's accused of shooting a woman in the face and neck at an off-campus student apartment.

A report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says 18-year-old Shantell Washington was lying on the kitchen floor when police arrived Tuesday night. Washington was taken to a hospital.

News outlets report Washington was visiting a friend at the WestMar Student Lofts.

Authorities say 22-year-old Chaz Christian is suspected of shooting Washington. Police say before leaving the scene, Christian told officers at the apartment complex to call 911 because someone had been shot.

A guest log obtained by Atlanta police indicated that Christian was also let into the apartment complex. A handgun was also recovered from the scene.

Further details have not been released.
