The shooting Friday prompted SWAT officers to be called to the scene, police confirmed.

Authorities believe the shooting took place inside a unit at The Mille at Brookhaven at 1000 Barone Avenue, Gurley told Channel 2 Action News at a news conference Friday evening.

 

The North Metro SWAT team was called in because it was unknown if anyone was in the apartment where the shooting took place, Gurley said. No one was inside, but police found evidence that a shooting took place.

There were no signed of forced entry into the apartment, and police haven’t identified a motive for the shooting, Gurley said. 

The two victims were found just before 3 p.m. at a Waffle House at 2886 Clairmont Road near I-85, police said.

One victim died at the hospital and the other underwent surgery and is in critical condition, Gurley said. He said the victims, who haven’t been named, were acquaintances.

The investigation is ongoing.
