Police: Two killed in shooting in Riverdale

- Two men were shot multiple times and killed after an incident on Roberts Drive in Riverdale, according to Riverdale police.

Police say one victim was an adult and one was a juvenile, and authorities are calling this a homicide investigation.

Riverdale Police shut down a building and business complex off Roberts Drive, after witnesses tell FOX 5 they reported hearing gunshots and people fleeing the area.

Police said around 3:30 p.m., they responded to 911 calls about an incident in the 600 block of Roberts Drive.

"I heard gunshots...I thought it might have been backfire because there was a maintenance man doing work. I had seen a police car came by, and an ambulance. Next thing I know, they had the house taped off," said Juan, a nearby resident, and witness who did not want to give his full name.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said its investigators were on the scene to aid Riverdale Police investigators.
