Robinson's family told Channel 2 Action News he had mental health issues.
Lance McFalls, a foreman at the apartment complex, recorded the incident on Facebook live and said about 20 unmarked police were at the apartment complex, Channel 2 reported.
“It wasn’t just a one-sided shootout,” McFalls said. “It was definitely fire from both sides. In the video, you can just hear the shots ring out.”
In the video posted on McFalls’ Facebook page, gun shots are heard bits at a time.
McFalls said in the video he was coming back from his lunch break and was about to enter a unit when officials told him to leave the area.
“Next thing I know, shots were fired,” he said on the video.
A visibly shaken McFalls and his co-workers got into his car and drove away from the scene.
McFalls said he saw officials and a person inside the apartment talking before he saw bullets ricocheting.
Chandler confirmed Robinson was the same man wanted in a shooting last week with Atlanta police at Royal Coach Apartments on Northside Circle. In the July 28 incident, police said Robinson pointed a gun at a maintenance man and cornered a mother and her child in the laundry room.
It was initially believed by police that Robinson may have had mental health isssues.
"We may be dealing with someone with some level of mental illness erratic behavior, but unfortunately that doesn't make impact of bullet any less powerful," Deputy Chief Erika Shields told Channel 2 in the July 28 incident.
