Woman shot, killed during early morning home invasion

ATLANTA — A woman is dead and two people are recovering in the hospital after a shooting in Fulton County.

Atlanta police say it happened at the Vista Adams apartment complex in the 1000 block of Delowe Drive in southwest Atlanta.

Police say that just after 6 a.m. Wednesday, a woman was shot in the head. She was taken to the hospital, where she died.

Investigators told Channel 2's Kristen Holloway another woman and a man were also attacked and that one of them was pistol-whipped by two men with guns.

The men are still on the run.


“The shooting occurred inside the apartment. Preliminary investigation reveals that two armed individuals may have forced everybody inside the apartment or potentially home-invaded the victims where the shooting took place,” Atlanta police Lt. Andrea Webster said.

Holloway spoke with neighbors who said they are worried about their safety.

"It makes you sad, and it's kind of scary, too," Larry Walter said.

Holloway went to the leasing office to talk with a manager to see if the complex notified residents about the incident. She also asked if management is adding extra security.

A woman she spoke with didn't answer those questions and asked her to leave.

Police said they are checking the area for surveillance cameras to see if they can get a picture of the shooters or the car they were driving.
