The sounds of gunfire startled residents early Thursday, Feb 11, in an apartment building in suburban Sandy Springs, north of Atlanta.
Police were called to The Eva Apartments at 789 Hammond Drive in north Fulton County, around 2 a.m. in response to reports of shots fired.
They found three males shot inside an apartment. Two were dead at the scene and a third was rushed to a local hospital and is expected to survive, Fox 5 News reported.
Police said all of the men knew each other. There is no motive for the shooting.
