Authorities are searching for an Atlanta man wanted in connection with a deadly shooting Sunday night at a Norcross extended stay hotel.

Brandon Lloyd White, 30, was seen arguing with the victim before he was shot at the HomeTowne Studios Atlanta on Jimmy Carter Boulevard, according to Norcross police. Officers were called to the hotel just south of Buford Highway and found the victim dead about 10 p.m.

The man was later identified as 35-year-old Darryl Adrian Eanes of Woodbine, police spokesman Sgt. Eric Butynski said in a news release.

“At this time, detectives believe the victim and White were known acquaintances who were seen arguing with each other earlier in the evening before White shot the victim and fled the scene,” Butynski said.

A body bag could be seen outside a row of rooms Monday morning as Norcross police and GBI agents worked the crime scene. The state agency is assisting in the investigation.

White remained at large Tuesday afternoon, according to Butynski.
