What we know

Police were originally dispatched to the scene late Saturday night for a ‘disturbance’ after someone called about a large party in the area because roads were blocked throughout the neighborhood.

When officers arrived, someone began firing shots from a vehicle leaving the area. The gunfire hit multiple people.

One of those people was Tanyla Johnson, who later died from her injuries. Johnson was only visiting family in Warner Robins for the weekend when she was killed.

On Tuesday, police said more than one person fired into the crowd.

On Friday, investigators arrested a 15-year-old and charged him with murder.
