“There was no reported exchange of words or aggressive driving behavior leading up to the shooting,” Lupo said.
The Roswell shooting came a day after shots were fired at a driver in Marietta, according to police. In that case, the shooter was arrested.
According to his warrant, 24-year-old Keyshun Burns fired two shots at a woman’s car while she was driving near the intersection of Polk and Locusts streets. The woman wasn’t injured, but a gunshot busted a tire on her Honda Civic, according to police.
Burns was later arrested on various charges, including aggravated assault and criminal damage. He was being held without bond late Tuesday at the Cobb County jail, booking records show.
The most recent deadly shooting on metro Atlanta roads happened June 1, when two men were killed in College Park, according to police.
At 9:25 p.m., investigators were called to a three-vehicle crash on I-285 East at the Riverdale Road exit ramp. At the scene, officers determined two men inside a BMW had been shot multiple times before crashing into two other vehicles. The men, identified as Alessander Bryant 31, and Marquise Flores, 22, both died from their injuries, police said.
Those inside the two vehicles hit by the BMW were injured, but are expected to survive. College Park police said the incident was the apparent result of road rage.
