No charges to be filed after deadly shootout in NE Atlanta, police say

Days after a deadly shooting in northeast Atlanta, police determined that the man who died was attempting to commit a robbery before he was shot and killed.

About 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, officers were called to the 100 block of Murray Hill Avenue, where they found a man with a gunshot wound to the chest, previously reported. The man, whose name has not been released, later died at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Investigators learned the man had been in a black four-door sedan with several other people before he was fatally shot. After the shooting, he was removed from the car and left near the road.

Police initially believed the other people in the sedan were suspects, since they drove away from the scene before officers arrived. However, investigators learned of a second shooting victim, who had been dropped off at Emory Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

After speaking with him and investigating further, police determined that the man who died was attempting to rob someone else in the vehicle before a shootout ensued. The shooting left both men with gunshot wounds.

No one has been charged, and police do not anticipate charges in this case.
