Witnesses told AJC.com the fatal shooting happened inside a tent. Isidro Rivera, who was working with a crew across the street at the time of the incident, said he heard five to 10 gunshots. He said he saw a man leave the tent, tuck a gun into his backpack and walk away.
Rivera said a few minutes later he looked inside the tent and saw a “lady full of blood” with gunshot shells near her body.
“It was a close range,” he said. “Real close.”
The shooting was witnessed, but investigators have only a vague description of the shooter at this time, Price said.
On June 1, 45-year-old Timothy Smith was found shot to death under a bridge on Piedmont Avenue. Witnesses told police the man occasionally slept under the overpass.
