Police investigate deadly shooting in NW Atlanta

Police investigated a deadly shooting Monday evening at an apartment complex in northwest Atlanta.

The shooting was reported about 5:15 p.m. at the Allen Hills Apartments on Middleton Road, according to Atlanta police spokesperson Officer Jamaine Chester. One person was shot and declared dead at the scene.

He was identified by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office as Timmie Thomas, 31, of Atlanta.

No further details have been released. The apartment complex is just off Martin Luther King Jr. Drive near the C.T. Martin Natatorium and Recreation Center.

It was the first of two deadly shootings police investigated Monday night. Shortly before 7 p.m., authorities were called to another apartment complex in northeast Atlanta’s Lindridge-Martin Manor neighborhood east of Buckhead.

There, firefighters discovered a shooting victim unconscious inside a BMW after he had crashed into the leasing office at the Lenox Woods apartments on Lenox Road. He later died at a hospital, according to police. His name was not released.

No suspects have been identified in either of Monday’s shootings, and police are asking anyone with information to come forward.
