ATLANTA — Police said two men were shot Saturday, one fatally, during an incident in Atlanta's westside.

According to Investigator James White, the shooting happened around 6 p.m. in the 2800 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive - the Seven Courts Apartments. That's where police responded to calls of a person shot - but found two instead.
