Deadly shooting at hydroponics warehouse in Atlanta

- A Customer Appreciation Day at a hydroponics warehouse in Northeast Atlanta took a deadly turn on Saturday.

Atlanta police said a man inside Taproot Hydroponics and Organics in the 2100 block of Faulkner Road was shot and killed Saturday afternoon.

Witnesses say they heard what they thought were fireworks as people began running out of the building.

"I'm just coming over here to get a haircut and next thing you know there's a body being hauled out next door here," witness Robert Roby said. 

Witnesses say three military medics who happened to be at the event rushed in to help the victim, but, despite their efforts, he died at the scene. 

Police have charged Yordanos Warner, 31, and Yohannes Warner, 37, with murder. Both are in the Fulton County Jail, and investigators do not believe there are any more suspects at large.
