A person of interest in a shooting Thursday morning in Douglasville turned himself into police later Thursday night.

Demarcus Almond, 24, was questioned by Douglasville police to give his side of the story in a shooting at a residence that left two people injured, Capt. Brad Stafford said Friday. Stafford said Almond was released after talking to police.

Police responded to a person shot call at 8305 Hollis St. near Warren Drive at about 10:45 a.m. Thursday.

Darius Campbell, 35, allegedly entered the home and confronted those in the residence with a rifle, according to Douglasville police. Police said Almond then shot Campbell in the leg in self-defense. During the gunfire, Danielle Smith, 25, an occupant of the residence, was also shot. Campbell was also hit in his face, arm, and chest, suffering nine gunshot wounds total, according to Stafford.

Both Campbell and Smith were transported to a local hospital and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Smith was released from the hospital later Thursday, while Campbell remained in care as of Thursday evening.

Stafford said it was unknown Friday whether any charges would be pressed in the case.
