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.
All three victims were pronounced dead at the scene. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office identified two of them as 43-year-old Rumondo Swinney and 29-year-old Darrius Gray. The identity of the third victim was withheld pending next-of-kin notification. The relationship between the three victims is not clear, police said.
Both incidents remain under investigation.
