“Upon arrival, units located a man inside the living room with a gunshot wound to the buttocks,” Officer Stephanie Brown said. “Units located a second male inside the kitchen deceased from an apparent gunshot wound.”
Emergency crews took the surviving victim for further treatment, according to police.
Officers learned a third man who said he was shot at the scene was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital by a friend.
