2 women, 1 man killed in shooting in northwest Atlanta

ATLANTA — Atlanta police are investigating a shooting that left three people dead.

According to police, the shooting happened inside a home on Newman Place in northwest Atlanta.

Authorities said they are not looking for any suspects at this time and believe it was a domestic-related shooting.

Officers say they found the bodies of one man and two women inside a bedroom in the home. They say they only found one gun.

Channel 2's Richard Elliot spoke to family members on the scene.

“I loved him. We all loved him,” Mia Ware said about her cousin, Norris Lowe.

Lowe, 37, was found dead in his bedroom with his girlfriend, Jocelyn Shepherd, 34, and an unidentified 22-year-old woman.


“He took care of everybody. He was a good man. All these people wouldn’t be out here if he was a bad person,” Ware said.

But Shepherd’s mother paints an entirely different picture. She claims her daughter was in an abusive relationship, one that she tried to end again and again over the past four years.

“He wouldn’t let her go,” Gwendolyn Shepherd said. “All I tried to do, I’ve been four years trying to get her to leave this abusive man and she wouldn’t do it because every time she did it, he’d come back to get her.”

Three other people in the house heard the gunshots and rushed in to help, but there was nothing they could do.
