Police investigating deadly shooting in southwest Atlanta



ATLANTA - Atlanta police are investigating the shooting death of a 29-year-old man outside an apartment complex.

Detectives searched for clues off University Avenue in southwest Atlanta following the shooting Saturday afternoon.

It happened just before 3 p.m.

The medical examiner identified the victim as Claude Dickerson of Montgomery, Alabama.

Authorities said someone shot Dickerson in the back of the head.

One resident told Channel 2 Action News she moved away from that part of the complex because it is mostly abandoned.

“It was too much going on out here. It was so isolated,” Stephanie Kennymore said.

Police are still searching for the shooter.
