The Union City Police Department tells FOX 5 that officers were called out to the Arcadia Apartments on the 5100 block of Thompson Road at around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.
When they got to the scene, officers say they saw three adult women with multiple lacerations and entry wounds on parts of both their upper and lower torsos. A 5-year-old child was found suffering from multiple lacerations as well.

Authorities say the act of violence happened shortly before 1:30 a.m. at a barbershop in a shopping center off of the 2400 block of Wesley Chapel Road.


Police responded to the shooting around 9 p.m. on Columbia Drive in Decatur. They found the victim who had been grazed by a bullet on his shoulder.
The victim told police he was on his porch when a group of men approached him and began shooting. He said he didn't know why they opened fire on him.

Peachtree City Police say that 32-year-old Dontavious Marqueze Parks was flashing a large amount of cash in a Best Buy store just minutes before buying an Apple Macbook Pro computer. Police said store employees had recognized Parks from previous shopping sprees in which he allegedly used fraudulent credit cards to purchase merchandise. So when he made the purchase with another fraudulent card, they called police.
Parks, who allegedly purchased the laptop with a bad credit card, was charged with identity fraud and obstructing law enforcement. Police said he is wanted by seven jurisdictions and some of the charges include violent crimes.
