A party crashing suspect that threatened individuals at an apartment in Atlanta was shot dead over the weekend. A story about the incident is on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution site.
The incident happened at an apartment in building 9 on the 700 block of Franklin Road between 2:30 a.m. and 2:50 a.m. last Friday, June 2. The shooting occurred in Marrieta.
Per Marietta Police spokesperson Charles McPhilamy, a man and two women were asked to leave the apartment party about an hour before the shooting.
McPhilamy said, “The witnesses stated the male returned an hour later and was enraged, demanding to be let back inside. They stated he began kicking the door and making verbal threats toward everyone inside, and that when they opened the door the male abruptly reached for his waistband as though he was drawing a firearm.”
A female resident pulled her firearm. She shot the suspect multiple times. The victim then called 911 to report the shooting.
McPhilamy said that emergency services transported the unnamed suspect to WellStar Kennestone Hospital. The suspect was pronounced dead at the hospital. McPhilamy said that police won’t release the name of the deceased suspect until after his family has been notified.
The Cobb County District Attorney’s Office spoke to witnesses and reviewed the facts. Per McPhilamy, the shooting “appears to be in self-defense”. McPhilamy said that no charges have been filed.
