1 killed, 3 others hurt after gunfire breaks out at Atlanta apartment complex, police say

This is a developing story.

ATLANTA — One person is dead and three other people were hurt after a shooting at an apartment complex near a school Monday afternoon, Atlanta Police said.

Officers responded around 2:30 p.m. to the Flipper Temple Apartments in the 2400 block of Abner Terrace NW -- which is near the Westside Atlanta Charter School off of Perry Boulevard. According to its calendar, the school is closed all this week. 

One person at the scene was taken to Grady Hospital but died. The Fulton County Medical Examiner later identified the person who died as 27-year-old Elijah Jackson.

APD said three others who were also injured in the shooting showed up at the hospital on their own. They are currently stable, but no other details about their conditions were given.

Now, officers are looking through security videos and trying to find witnesses.

It's unclear at this time how many people may have opened fire. It's also unknown if any of the people hurt live at the apartment complex.
