Police investigating shooting at Flat Shoals Road apartment complex

IMG_2345Police are investigating the shooting of two people, including a teenager, at a south DeKalb apartment complex Sept. 25.

DeKalb police Capt. Stephen Fore said police responded to a call at 9:20 a.m. about a person shot at  the Aspen Woods Apartment Homes in the 3300 block of Flat Shoals Road, just south of The Gallery at South DeKalb mall.

“They arrived at the scene and saw two victims, a 21-year-old who was shot in the stomach, and a 17-year-old who was shot in the hand,” Fore said.

Fore said the victims’ injuries are believed to be non-life threatening. During the investigation, Fore said police determined that the shooting stemmed from an incident that happened two hours before the shooting.

“An altercation between teenagers, possibly related to bullying,” he said.

Fore said a hand gun was used in the shooting. The suspect fled the area in a vehicle and police are searching for him.

“We believe we do know who that [suspect] is,” he said. “We’re working now to verified that identity and locate that individual.”

Nearby Flat Shoals Elementary School was placed on lock down while police searched for the gunman.

    This area is a disaster with Commissioners Larry Johnson and Kathie Gannon at the helm !!! They both have done nothing to help clean up or protect the citizens of this district = The Murder Capitol of the Metro Atlanta Area !!!

    Evidently the South Precinct Commander for DeKalb Police believes that greatly overcrowded bars and bars full of Illegal Video Gambling Machines, Drugs and Prostitution are welcomed in Gresham Park and East n South DeKalb. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT ??? We residents are sick and tired of everybody’s palm “getting greased” to allow this crap to continue. How this Precinct Commander keeps his job, we don’t know ???

    Right where this shooting occured the grass and weeds on the sidewalk are SEVEN FEET TALL ??? What’s up with that Commissioners Johnson and Gannon ???

    We have homes on Flat Shoals Road that have been burned out since 1998 = 14 years = and they still sit while someone is getting paid off ???

    Cars and motorcycles speed up and down the streets with no regular Police Patrols ever ???

    No way to Police a Districet placing all in The Metro Area at risk ???

    IF YOU DON’T LIVE IN EAST OR SOUTH DEKALB = KEEP OUT = FOR IT SURE AIN’T SAFE !!!
