Fatal shooting being investigated in southeast Atlanta

Atlanta police are investigating the shooting death of a man Monday night in southeast Atlanta.

Officers initially responded to 9 p.m. reports of shots fired at an apartment complex on Jonesboro Road, but found no victim, Channel 2 Action News reported.

A short time later, a man with gunshot wounds was found outside a home about a quarter-mile away on Springside Drive. The man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he later died.

“At this point in our investigation, we do believe that the shooting actually did occur in the apartment complex when the call initially came in,” Atlanta police Capt. Paul Guerrucci told Channel 2.

Police have not released the name of the victim, who was apparently driven to the home where he was found after being shot.

“There’s a lot of things we simply do not know right now,” Guerrucci said.
