Drugs a possible motive in fatal College Park shooting

A shooting at a College Park apartment that left three men dead Monday afternoon apparently was the result of a drug deal gone bad, police said Tuesday.

About 2:40 p.m., Dtris Owens, Brandin Chevis and Bobby Humphrey were found dead inside a unit at the Embarcadero Club Apartments in the 2200 block of Sullivan Road, College Park police spokesman Gerald Riser Jr. said Tuesday.

Owens, 25, lived at the complex, Riser said. Chevis, 26, of Lithia Springs, was visiting Owens. Humphrey’s residence is not known.

Demarrius Adams, 18, was injured in the shooting, Riser said. He is at Grady Memorial Hospital undergoing a second surgery.

Also, police detained and interviewed two 18-year-old men, Shannon White and Albert Mayes, Riser said.

White, Humphrey and Adams went to the apartment to purchase marijuana, Riser said. During the meeting, Humphrey and White shot Chevis and Adams and Owens shot each other, police said.

White ran to a vehicle, where Mayes was waiting.

Marijuana, an unknown white substance, an AK-47, cellphones and laptops were found inside the apartment, Riser said.

Mayes’ role in the incident is unclear.
