There are no suspects at this time.

BROOKHAVEN, Ga. -- One person was shot to death at an apartment complex in Brookhaven Thursday evening.

According to Brookhaven Police Major Brandon Gurley, the incident happened at the Avana Apartments on Clairmont Road. 

The victim, identified as 26-year-old Travis Ridley, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds and later died. 

Detectives determined that the shooting involved some sort of drug activity, and that neither the victim nor the shooter lived at the complex. Police believe that the shooter may have fired his gun after Ridley showed a gun himself. Detectives recovered a gun they believed belonged to Ridley at the scene.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS (8477).
