Police have identified a suspect in a shooting that took place Saturday on Shoreline Drive.

They have not identified the male by name but Rome Police Department Assistant Chief Debbie Burnett said warrants have been issued for a 16-year-old male who is accused of armed robbery.

"Due to his age a name is not released at this time," Burnett said in a press release. "He will be charged as an adult so more information will be released in the near future."

There is also a second suspect in the case, she said.

"Once the second suspect has been positively identified more information will be released."

On Saturday, around 12:41 a.m. Rome Police officers responded to a call on Shoreline Drive of a 2013 blue Nissan Rogue in a ditch.

Police found the vehicle but then located a 25-year-old woman who was bleeding from a gunshot wound to her upper body. She was taken to the hospital for treatment and police said she was in critical but stable condition at that time.

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact Investigator Aaron Thacker at the Rome Police Department at 706-238-5111.
