Atlanta Shooting Leaves 3 Dead


A southeast Atlanta shooting has left three dead and two seriously injured. One of the deceased is believed to be a teenager. When police arrived on the scene there were five people who had been shot. Three people were found killed, and another male and female were injured. The male was in critical condition. Those two were transported to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment, and no further word of their condition has been given.

Atlanta Police say that they do not believe this to have been a random home invasion. They suspect that all of the shooting victims were known to each other, although no conclusions as to motive for the crime has been announced. Homicide investigators are currently awaiting the issuance of search warrants in order to enter and search the home on Richmond Avenue to hopefully find something to shed some light onto the circumstances surrounding the quintuple shooting. More details will be made public as the investigation continues.
