Officials have released the name of the second person killed in Wednesday’s shooting at a southwest Atlanta recording studio.

Jerome Blake, 28, was shot to death at The Metropolitan in the business and arts district, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office said Friday. Nathan Shannon, 27, of Atlanta, was the other fatality.

Atlanta police responded to a shots-fired call about 8:22 p.m. Wednesday at the studio, which is located at Metropolitan Parkway and Bronner Brothers Way. Several recording studios, offices and living spaces are in the area.

Police had no further information Friday about the shooting. The investigation is ongoing.

Bullets ruptured a waterline and flooded the crime scene, delaying the investigation.
