A woman was found shot to death between two cars Friday morning in the parking lot of a DeKalb County apartment complex.
Officers were called to the Forest Cove apartments on Meadowglen Village Lane outside Doraville about 1:30 a.m. after receiving a 911 call about a person shot, police reports indicate. The woman, identified by the DeKalb County Medical Examiner’s office as 21-year-old Erica Cruz, was pronounced dead at the scene.
“We responded to the apartment complex tonight in reference to a deceased female found lying in between two cars,” Sgt. Lynn Shuler told Channel 2 Action News from the scene. “She had an apparent gunshot wound to the head.”
According to a police report obtained Friday evening by AJC.com, the 911 caller told dispatchers he witnessed the incident. He said a man wearing a white jacket and blue jeans was sitting inside an older-model gold Toyota Camry with the victim before shooting her in front of building No. 3582, the report states.
DeKalb police investigated a separate double shooting at an apartment complex in the southern part of the county later that morning.
Two men were shot inside an apartment on Kensington Road early Friday morning. They were taken to a local hospital in serious condition, according to police.
