Second man shot dead in Little 5 Points identified

Channel 2's Steve Gehlbach reports

Authorities have released the name of the second Atlanta man killed in a double shooting Saturday night in northeast Atlanta.

On Sunday, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office identified Chaitanyalila Kelsey, 32, as the second man shot and killed just before 3 a.m. Saturday in the Little 5 Points area.

Police were looking for leads in the shooting that left Kelsey, and 33-year-old Joseph Hruska dead.

Police told Channel 2 Action News that they have no witnesses who saw the shooting, but an employee of the Vortex nearby heard the shots and went to investigate.

Investigators said the victims were not employees of any of the businesses in Little Five Points that were closing at the time.

Police were working to determine if the fatal shootings were connected to an armed robbery about a mile away on North Highland Avenue. Two people in that area were robbed at gunpoint. The robbery call came in about the same time as the shooting, police told Channel 2.
