DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — A DeKalb County apartment complex is a crime scene early Wednesday morning after a shootout left three people dead.
Channel 2's Darryn Moore watched officers with protective gear and guns move in on the apartment complex, where a robber ambushed two men and tried to rob them.
All three are dead.
Detectives told Moore that the victims were in the parking lot of the Indian Valley Apartment Complex drinking beer when a man approached them and pulled out a gun.
“I believe the one tried to rob the two, a struggle ensued over the firearm and everyone got shot,” said DeKalb County Police Capt. A.W. Ford.
Detectives said before the victims died, one of them took the robber's gun and shot him.
A witness told police that the shooter ran toward Northern Avenue and was limping like he had been shot.
The names of the two victims have not yet been released.
