Adams, 14, was shot in the back the night of Feb. 11 after officials say four people broke into her home on Bethlehem Church Road.
According to the sheriff's office, the suspects broke in and started making demands before they started shooting.
Investigators said the house was targeted because the suspects were looking for someone, but that person was not in the home during the time of the break-in.
According to police documents, Adams was hiding from the offenders when they broke in, but came out of hiding when the suspects went outside to the car. They said she then went to the front door with a BB gun and one of the suspects fired multiple shots and hit her. The gunshot caused her paralysis before ultimately killing her.
Adams had just moved to Coweta County from South Georgia to live with her mother.
