3 persons of interest sought in SW Atlanta home invasion, homicide

A man shot and killed Sunday night in a southwest Atlanta apartment invited his shooter inside, police said. 

A neighbor in an apartment complex in the 200 block of Crumley Street called police when she heard gunshots in the apartment next to hers, according to Atlanta police. Officers arrived about 8:15 p.m. 

“She stated she looked out the window (and) saw someone run out of her neighbor’s apartment and jump into a black (Cadillac) Escalade and leave the scene,” Atlanta police spokeswoman Officer Stephanie Brown said in a statement.  

The apartment door was left open, and officers found a man lying dead on the ground, Brown said. The victim, identified as Robert Levy Jr., 32, of Atlanta, was shot in the head, a detective at the scene told Channel 2 Action News. 

After an investigation, homicide detectives determined the victim invited the suspect into the apartment and an altercation took place. They also located narcotics in plain view inside the home, according to police. 

On Thursday, investigators released surveillance video of three persons of interests. The three men are known to travel in a black Cadillac Escalade and a gray Nissan SUV, according to police.
