Barbara Billings' home was the target of more than a dozen gunshots in Georgetown, Georgia.

Chief Deputy Eddie Ingram says four suspects were involved in the shooting last Saturday.

He says a recent group calling themselves the "White T-shirts" and those who may be affiliated with the 37-boys group began a battle, targeting one home and injuring those in another.

Authorities say the suspects pulled up at a side road and began shooting to home. Some of the shots went under the home, hitting a two-year-old boy who was playing in his living room.

"He was hit just about the knee and missed the main artery there by just, you could actually see the artery in the child’s leg when we got there that's how bad the injury was," said Ingram.

Even though the toddler isn't in pain anymore, others like Billings are fearing for their safety.

"One guy had told me if you all think I shot your mama's house wait until they let me go," said Billings.

Three of the four men involved have been arrested.

18-year old Marquis Ivory and 21-year old Tommy Ivory are currently in the Randolf County Jail. The other suspect is in a juvenile facility.

Felony warrants have been signed for the fourth suspect, Jeremy Granger. Authorities are still searching for him. He is considered armed and dangerous.
