Police investigating fatal shooting in Downtown

The Atlanta Police Department is investigating a fatal overnight shooting in Downtown. According to the AJC, a man was shot and killed near the intersection of Auburn and Piedmont avenues.

“We don’t believe it was random,” said Capt. Paul Guerrucci, Atlanta police homicide unit commander. “We believe that the victim was specifically targeted for one reason or another.”

The man, identified by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office as Deonte Rogers, 26, was transported from the scene to a hospital, where he died, Guerrucci said. At least two suspects were seen running from the scene, he said.
