DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - Police have arrested a man for a March shooting which injured two young children inside a DeKalb County apartment.
Deonte Daugherty was charged with two counts of first-degree cruelty to children and 12 counts of aggravated assault.
Those charges stem from the shooting of 6-year-old Justin and 7-year-old Mia, two cousins who were sleeping inside a unit at the Artesian East Village Apartments on Bouldercrest Road early morning on March 30.
Six-year-old Justin was shot in his side and 7-year-old Mia needed surgery after being hit in the leg, but both should be alright.
