DeKalb: 2 women found shot dead outside apartment building

DeKalb County police this morning are investigating a shooting at an apartment complex near I-20 that left two women dead.

The women were found dead at the Walden Pond complex on Shellbark Road off Snapfinger Woods Drive.

DeKalb police Capt. Stephen Fore told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that officers responding to a 6 a.m. call about the incident “found two victims, female, early to mid-20s, both deceased from what appears to be gunshot wounds.”

He said both bodies were found outside, “very nearby” one another.

“Someone is reporting that they heard shots sometime last night, but we were not notified until 6 a.m. when someone came out and observed one of the victims,” Fore said.

He said detectives have not determined a motive for the shootings, and do not yet know the connection between the women or if either lived in the complex.
