EAST POINT, Ga. (AP) - Police in suburban Atlanta say a teenage boy has been killed in a triple shooting.

East Point city spokeswoman Renita Shelton says a 14-year-old boy was fatally shot and at least two other young men were wounded in a shooting Monday afternoon near the Lakeshire Village apartments.

Shelton says two surviving victims were not on the scene when emergency responders arrived. East Point police spokesman Cliff Chandler says authorities found one victim who is now hospitalized, and police are searching for the third and possibly a fourth victim.

Information on what led to the shooting and a detailed description of the suspect was not immediately available.

Shelton says the mother of the slain teen is pregnant and was taken to a local hospital to be monitored for emotional distress.
