POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) - Police in the Atlanta area say they’ve made an arrest in the deaths of a young couple found shot in their car, but they’re not releasing the suspect’s name or other details.

Police say 24-year-old Anthony Costner and 22-year-old Catherine Costner of Lithia Springs were found shot in their car early Thursday morning.

Authorities say their 3-year-old daughter was also in the car, uninjured. She was released to relatives.

Deputy Chief of Police Matt Boyd has said the shooting was not random. WSB-TV ( ) reports that police said in a statement they’re not releasing circumstances surrounding the arrest “due to the integrity of the investigation.”
