MARIETTA, Ga. - Marietta Police are investigating two separate shooting incidents that happened on the same street, this week.

Police say a female juvenile was shot during a party at the Cinnamon Ridge Apartments on Franklin Road Wednesday evening. The shooting happened after a fight broke out down the street. The young girl was struck by a stray bullet.

Earlier Wednesday morning, police responded to a fatal shooting next door at the  'Dwell at 750' Apartments. That shooting wounded two others and happened as a result of a melee between party organizers and a group of uninvited guests.

The juvenile injured in the shooting at Cinnamon Ridge was transported to Kennestone Hospital. She is expected to recover.

Suspects in both cases have been detained by police. Police tell FOX 5 the two shooting are not related.

A group of human rights activists stood on Franklin Road Thursday, demanding an end to violence.
