NORCROSS, Ga. (AP) -- A high school freshman was fatally shot
during a home invasion in the Atlanta suburb of Norcross.
Police say 15-year-old Nicholas Jackson was shot around 6:30
p.m. Thursday when several people broke into the family's home. His sister was also home and tried to revive her brother using CPR after calling 911. Police say Jackson died on the way to the hospital.
Police say they took six men into custody. Each faces felony
murder and burglary charges.
Police did not immediately release a motive for the shooting but
said Friday it doesn't appear to be gang-related.
The teenager is the fourth person shot to death in Gwinnett
County in the past four days. Other killings this week in the
suburban Atlanta county have occurred in Lilburn and Buford.
