Crime & Safety

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (AP) — Warner Robins city leaders are considering new laws to regulate large parties.

The discussion comes after a teenage girl was shot to death and four others wounded by gunfire at a large weekend party during the Labor Day weekend.

WMAZ-TV reports that the city requires a permit for parades or picketing, but no ordinance or permit for large gatherings like block parties.

Police say 15-year-old Tanyla Johnson was killed in the shooting.

Police say the shots had been fired into the crowd from a vehicle leaving the area.

Warner Robins is about 100 miles southeast of Atlanta.
