Officers interviewed witnesses and learned a suspected intruder and the two victims were known to each other, according to Athens police.

Two people were shot and an intruder was killed in a deadly exchange of gunfire in Athens on Monday morning, police said.

Athens-Clarke County police were called to a shooting in progress at a home on Ponderosa Drive just before 7:30 a.m. They found two men with gunshot wounds and another man shot dead, police spokesman Geof Gilland said.

The man killed was identified by police as 44-year-old Quincy Davis. He came to the home Monday morning to confront an ex-girlfriend, Gilland told AJC.com.

“The female victim was leaving for work when the suspect pointed a gun to her head and pushed her back into the home,” he said.

Davis and another man staying in the home exchanged gunfire. There were a total of four people inside, two women and two men. Both men were hit in the spray of bullets.

Davis was pronounced dead at the scene. The two injured men were taken to an area hospital, and their conditions were not known Monday afternoon.

The shooting is still under investigation, Gilland said.
