2 men fatally shot at northwest Atlanta studio

An investigation is under way into the deaths of two men who were fatally shot at a music studio in northwest Atlanta late Friday night.

The men were shot multiple times at the studio, which doubles as a car wash, on Northside Drive and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where they later died.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victims as Willie Jones and Josefices W. Rogers, both 39, of Atlanta.

A third man was taken to Grady, where he is in critical but stable condition, according to the Atlanta Police Department. It was unclear how the  third man was connected to the incident. Witnesses said several men brandishing handguns came demanding money when shots rang out, the police reported.

Friends told Channel 2 Action News that the two victims who died lived at the business, washing cars in the lot during the day and recording rap music at night.

A witness told Atlanta police the suspects in last night's  shooting were parked outside before entering the building and shooting the victims, said police spokeswoman Kim Jones. Police said the shooters may have been traveling in a brown or tan Chevy Tahoe or Suburban.

No suspects have been identified so far. The investigation is ongoing.

Last year, a man was shot and killed in what police said was likely a robbery-motivated shooting outside of a recording studio in College Park.
