2 dead, 1 injured in shooting at Sandy Springs apartments

Two people are dead and another was injured in an early-morning shooting at an apartment complex in Sandy Springs.

Sandy Springs police opened a murder investigation after responding to the Eva Apartments on Hammond Drive shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday, spokesman Sgt. Salvador Ortega confirmed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“This was not a random act and all those involved knew each other,” Ortega said. “No one else is in danger.”

Police have not released the identities of the victims, but said Friday evening that detectives are searching for two or three suspects in the case. No additional details about the deadly shooting have been released.
