"At the time of the incident, Kelly James McDonald, Jr. was wanted for charges stemming from a domestic violence incident in Florida with Kelly Jean Garrison," Jarrard wrote in a press statement Friday afternoon.
A 16-year-old who was shot during the incident underwent multiple surgeries, according to Jarrard. At last report, she remained at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta - Egleston Hospital.
Jarrard said two other children at the residence were not seriously hurt.
"[A] 13-year-old victim had minor scratches to her hand and did not need to be transported to the hospital," Jarrard wrote. "The 2-year-old was found to not be injured at the hospital."
