An unknown assailant early Saturday fired a gun through the wall of a Parks Mill Road apartment and wounded a man and woman asleep in their bed.
Lt. Lee Lapsky, commander of the Auburn Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division, said that Kathy Lynn McCallister, 35, was wounded seven times. Michael John Borg, 54, was hit once.
“She was struck four times on the legs and three times on the upper torso,” Lapsky said. “He was wounded in the lower abdomen area.”
Both victims were transported by ambulance to Gwinnett Medical Center, where each has since undergone surgery. They are expected to recover because the shooter used a small-caliber gun.
“The weapon has not been recovered, but we did manage to find three casings outside,” Lapsky said. “I know she had three bullets in her; he had one bullet in him. She had several pass-through wounds where the bullet enters and exits the body.”
The casings from the .25-caliber pistol were found outside the rear of the residence, according to a police incident report.
“They were located below the air conditioning unit, where there were a number of holes entering the residence,” the report states.
An initial suspect known to the victims has been cleared. Police at this point do not have any idea who fired the gun.
“We do not know who did it. We collected evidence from the scene. As soon as the victims are capable of talking, we are going to conduct interviews,” said Lapsky.
According to the police report, the shooting occurred at about 3:49 a.m. Nov. 15. The victims initially didn’t know what hit them.
The woman’s daughter said she heard a loud bang moments before her mother yelled to her to come into her room.
“When she saw her mom, her mom stated she was bleeding but did not know why,” states the report. “Mr. Borg also stated to me he thought he heard a real gun shot go off just before he felt bleeding.”
Lapsky said he does not know of another double shooting in Auburn’s history.
“The last time we had a shooting in Auburn, where somebody was actually hit, was in 2001.”
