Few details are available about what led to Flowers’ death. A property search lists the address as the location for a loft apartment building with several fitness and dance studios. Atlanta police did not specify why the man was at the building when he was shot.
His death happened within walking distance of another deadly shooting early Sunday morning. Just before 1 a.m., officers were sent to the intersection of Whitehall and McDaniel streets, where they found three men with injuries “consistent with gunfire,” Atlanta police homicide commander Lt. Daniel Genson said at the time.
