Suspect in weekend shooting in SW Atlanta surrenders

Hours after authorities released surveillance images of a man wanted in connection with a weekend shooting in southwest Atlanta, the suspect surrendered at the police department’s Zone 4 precinct.

Brodrick Davis, a 39-year-old felon, was charged Monday with aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, Atlanta police Officer Stephanie Brown said.

Also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, no bond was set for Davis, Fulton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said.

Police had been looking for Davis since 1:30 p.m. Saturday, when they responded to the shooting in the 1700 block of Campbellton Road.

They learned two men were inside a vehicle when a struggle began.

“At some point during the struggle,” Brown said, “the suspect shot the victim several times.”

The wounded man, also 39, got out of the car and ran from the vehicle. Davis drove away from the scene, police said. 

The victim was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in serious condition. His status is unknown, and his name has not been released.

Davis’ next court hearing is Oct. 3.
