Woman gunned down at birthday party near Atlanta

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Police in Atlanta's northeastern suburbs are searching for a suspect after a woman was shot and killed and another woman wounded by gunfire at a birthday party.

Authorities say both victims were found in the garage of a home on Crystal Lake Drive in the Lawrenceville area early Sunday evening.

Police say the gunfire happened during a birthday party, and police tape surrounded a bounce house on the front lawn. WXIA-TV reports (http://on.11alive.com/1hzE7mx) that gunfire can be heard in the background of the 911 call.

Police said they're searching for a 40-year-old man seen leaving the scene in a Volvo after the shooting around 5 p.m. Sunday. They say a felony murder warrant has been obtained for that man's arrest.

Police didn't release information about the wounded woman's condition.
