Deadly shooting outside Grady Hospital could be connected to DeKalb shooting that killed teen, police say

Police said on Monday that the two shootings could be connected but they will investigate them separately.

ATLANTA — Police believe a deadly shooting outside Grady Hospital could be connected to another one in Decatur that left a 16-year-old dead. 

According to Atlanta Police, evidence indicates the scene outside of the hospital was a family dispute that originated out of DeKalb County.

Some family members from the incident in DeKalb showed up outside of the emergency room, and that's when the two people were shot. The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office identified the person who died as 32-year-old Vincent Parks, Jr.; one other is injured. 

Hours earlier, authorities said a teen and another person were shot in the DeKalb incident. According to the DeKalb County medical examiner, 16-year-old Dysheae Hall was killed at 4919 Flat Shoals Parkway around 7:35 p.m. At this time, DeKalb officers said they were still searching for three shooters who got away.

While police are working on getting surveillance video to identify the shooters in Atlanta, Deputy Chief Charles Hampton Jr. said they drove off in a dark-colored vehicle.

Officers said family members at the scene were cooperating with police.
