Police: 1 killed, 1 hospitalized in 'gun battle' at SE Atlanta apartments

An overnight shooting killed one man and landed a second in Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition, according to Atlanta police.

Officials say the shooting happened around 1:30 Saturday morning at the Trestletree Village Apartments on the 900 block of United Avenue.

Investigators spent several hours piecing through shell casings scattered in an apartment complex parking lot on United Avenue in southeast Atlanta.

“About 1:30 this morning, we responded to a shooting of two people, and [evidence on] the scene is telling us some type of gun battle ensued between two people,” said Capt. D’Andrea Price.

Police are investigating the deadly double shooting at the Atlanta apartment complex.

Concerned neighbors, family and friends congregated outside of the Trestletree Village Apartments, as police tried to pinpoint what triggered the deadly gun battle.
