2 dead after possible home invasion on Browns Mill Road SE

Two people are dead after an overnight shooting at a home on Browns Mill Road SE in southeast Atlanta, according to Atlanta police.

It reportedly happened around 12:30 a.m.

Neighbors living near the home say the gunfire woke them up in the middle of the night.

"Just heard gunshots and kind of woke up," next door neighbor Tony Jefferson told FOX 5. "After that, we looked out of the door and we just saw police out here and everything," Jefferson said.

Even though Sean Castellow lives a block away, he couldn’t help but notice the gunshots, too.   

"Last night it was in rapid succession, and it was like about six or seven gunshots," Castellow said.
