No arrests made after GSU student shot twice in chest during robbery

A 20-year-old Georgia State University student lay in a pool of blood Tuesday night after he was shot in the chest during a home invasion, police say.

Letan Nsain of Atlanta told police he was in an apartment at 112 Courtland Street with about eight or nine other people at the time of the shooting, according to an Atlanta police report obtained Thursday by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Rich told police he had been sleeping when there was a shooting in an upstairs apartment, Officer D. Perez wrote in the report.

The front door frame was damaged and police saw three .22-caliber shell casings on the floor. The apartment smelled strongly of marijuana, Perez wrote.

At the hospital, Nsain told police some of the people in the apartment were doing homework and some were smoking pot.

When an unidentified person forced his way into the apartment with a “long gun” and fired a shot, Nsain hid in another room, the report said.

The gunman then forced his way into that room and brought Nsain back into the living room and told everyone to empty their pockets, the report said.

That’s when Nsain tried to run out of the apartment and was shot twice in the chest. He continued running down the stairs, banging on doors and saying he’d been shot and needed help.

Nsain was in stable condition Tuesday night.

No arrests had been made as of Thursday evening.
