Police find Mustang, but not dog belonging to man shot to death

His 2001 black Ford Mustang has been found about 15 miles away from his southwest Atlanta home. But there’s no still sign of the small dog that belonged to Quintavius Waters, who was found shot to death late Monday.

Shortly before midnight Monday, a roommate returned to a home in the 1000 block of Allegheny Street, in a neighborhood off Cascade Avenue, and found Waters face down in his bed, according to police.

Investigators determined Waters had been shot in the head, but there were no signs of forced entry into the home. Missing were Waters’ car and Yorkshire terrier.

“He was crazy about his dog,” Waters’ friend, Toboris Character, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

On Thursday, Atlanta police said the Mustang was recovered at a home on Old Mill Court in College Park after someone reported a suspicious person and vehicle in the area.

Waters worked as a security guard at Club Lacura on Metropolitan Parkway and for the Atlanta rapper known as Young Thug, Character said. Character said he had previously warned Waters about bringing strangers into his home.

“When I first met him, he was so welcoming, letting me into his home,” Character said. “And I told him, ‘You can’t do that in Atlanta.’ I guess he did that to someone else, to the wrong person.”

No arrests had been made in the case late Thursday.
