ATLANTA – One man was killed and a woman injured in an early Saturday morning shooting in northwest Atlanta.
Police have detained a “person of interest,” after officers responded to reports of a shooting at a Troy Street home near Washington Park around 1 am.
The male victim was pronounced dead on the scene, while the woman, who was found lying in the street with several gunshot wounds in her stomach, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition.
Police believe all of the parties involved in the shooting knew each other, and that an argument led to the shooting.
Witnesses told police that the suspect was in a wheelchair and fled the scene.
A firearm, which police believe to be the murder weapon, was found in some nearby bushes. Police also recovered several shell casings at the scene.
