ATLANTA —

A suspect is in jail accused of killing a 60-year-old man in his northeast Atlanta apartment.

Police charged Andre Myrick with murder.

They say he shot and killed a man at an apartment complex on Wellbourne Drive Saturday afternoon.

Neighbors say they believe the victim had been selling drugs out of his home. Meanwhile, residents across the street are now concerned about their family's safety.

"It is upsetting and you hear there's a murder, and my wife was coming home right then," Robert Sanders said.

Channel 2 Action News checked Myrick's background and found he is a convicted felon who has been in and out of jail on drug and other charges.
