Warrants released Wednesday reveal that police believe a marijuana sale resulted in the death of a 26-year-old Atlanta man in Brookhaven.
Travis Ridley died after the suspects robbed him while involved in the $26,000 drug deal on June 1 at Avana Uptown apartments, the warrants said. The documents allege Ridley was trying to buy the marijuana with a friend.
Initially, investigators said Ridley may have been shot after pulling a gun. Detectives did find a firearm at the scene they believe belonged to Ridley.
But it isn’t clear if he, in fact, pulled it.
Both suspects remain in the county jail.
