Two people were killed and at least six others were injured Saturday night at a house party attended by more than 100 teenagers in a suburb outside Atlanta.

Shots were fired after a “confrontation” at the party, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Sunday morning, describing a “very active investigation.”

“Information is very limited at this time,” the sheriff’s office said. “Our investigators have worked all night and are still there looking for answers.”

No more details were offered about the shooting or the identities of the victims.

The sheriff’s office asked anyone with knowledge about potential suspects to come forward with the information.

Douglasville is a suburb about 20 miles west of downtown Atlanta.

CORRECTION (March 6, 2023, 8:47 a.m. ET): A previous version of this article misstated the name of the sheriff’s office investigating the shooting. It is the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, not the Douglasville County Sheriff’s Office.
