The owner, an employee and a robbery suspect were shot and killed Friday night at a liquor store in College Park.

Three people were killed during an armed robbery attempt at a liquor store on Old National Highway in College Park, police said. 

The owner, an employee and the suspect were all shot and killed during the gunfire Friday night, Lt. Lance Patterson said.

The people killed were Tea Moe, 55, of Marietta, Mashona Roberts, 35, of Atlanta, and Brandon Doe, 19, of Sparks, according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office.

Moe was the store owner, Roberts was the employee, and Doe was the robbery suspect, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Patterson confirmed the owner shot the suspect but said police are still investigating the sequence of events. 

“We don’t know who shot first,” he said, “but we do know the store employee was somehow caught in crossfire between the store owner and perpetrator.”

The employee was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. 

Police said they are not looking for any additional suspects at this time.

The store was in the 5000 block of Old National Highway, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Doe was a unanimous first-team all-state player as a junior running back in 2016, when he rushed for over 2,000 yards for Cook High in Adel, a South Georgia town about 10 miles east of Moultrie. But Doe was arrested in June and charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault in Cook County, according to WTVM-TV of Columbus. He did not attend school as a senior.
