Michael Jeter, 52, of Atlanta was supposed to meet his brothers Sunday night for dinner, but never showed up, Officer Kim Jones with Atlanta police said. One of Jeter’s brothers drove to Gordon’s Body Shop on Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard, where he found Jeter covered in blood with severe head trauma.
Jeter was not alert and barely conscious, according to police. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he remained Monday afternoon. A family member told Channel 2 Action News that Jeter was in the intensive care unit and had had two surgeries.
