A Statham Elementary School teacher sustained non-life threatening injuries during a shooting at her family home which left her sister dead and her mother wounded.
Amy Norred, 31, was transported to Athens Regional Medical Center for treatment. Her four-year-old son, who was present during the shooting, was uninjured.
Authorities have charged her brother, Richard Norred, age 28, with aggravated assault and murder in connection with the shooting. Norred was found inside the Athens home suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.
Police have yet to determine a motive for the shooting. According to authorities, Norred killed his sister Leigh Pope, 29, and wounded his sister Amy and his mother Carol Norred, 63, before entering a bathroom and shooting himself in the chest with a .380 caliber pistol. He was transported to Athens Regional Medical Center and was last reported to be in critical condition.
Leigh Pope’s infant daughter was also in the home when the shooting occurred, but was not injured.
