Woman struck in the thigh by stray bullet

ATLANTA -- A woman was in stable condition after being shot in the leg Tuesday morning.

The shooting happened at around 12:30 a.m. at the Providence at Cascade Apartments in the 300 block of Fairburn Road.

Atlanta Police Capt. Terrell Griffin said the 19-year-old victim was inside her apartment when shots rang out nearby. The woman told investigators a bullet passed through her front door and struck her in the thigh.

The victim was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment.

No suspects have been named. Griffin said police spoke with a security guard, who told them of a dispute that happened Monday in the same apartment building. Investigators are working to determine if the argument and the shooting are related.
