Atlanta police search for double murder suspect

Posted: Updated:

Atlanta police said a man shot and killed a man and woman on a busy neighborhood street in northwest Atlanta.

CBS Atlanta News was there when emotions rain high as family, friends and neighbors learned that two people were shot and killed on Holly Street Northwest.

Atlanta police said the double homicide started as a domestic dispute between the shooter and the female victim.

When detectives arrived at about 5 p.m. Wednesday, they found the woman and a man both shot multiple times. One victim was on each side of the street.

The double crime scene forced officers to close the road while they combed the area for clues.

Investigators said the suspected shooter knew the victims.

Detectives told CBS Atlanta News that the suspect is about 28 years old and wasn't wearing a shirt when he took off.

Police said they have a good idea of who the shooter is and are hoping he will just turn himself in.

Meanwhile, they're asking anyone who may have any information about the crime to give them a call.
