The shooting comes less than an hour after a death investigation at another Atlanta apartment. Around 1 a.m., Atlanta police were called to Santafe Villa on Metropolitan Parkway and found a man with a stab wound to the chest, police said. One person was detained for questioning after police believe the fatal stabbing may have been a result of an argument with a neighbor, authorities said.
