Homicide victim found on apartment stairs

Man found shot to death on an apartment stairwell Tuesday afternoon. 

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) -- Police are looking for the person who shot and killed a man Tuesday, inside the 500 apartments on Northside Circle in northwest Atlanta.

Officers said the man shot and killed was in his twenties. They believe he was shot inside an apartment, but said he walked outside and down a flight of stairs where he collapsed. Investigators concluded this due to a trail of blood. The man died on the scene.

“It’s terrible, but you know things happen,” said Jerome Marion, a neighbor. “Yeah, it makes you think you just have to be careful all of the time.

CBS46 reported on a drowning in the same apartment complex in March. Police say Shomari Billings, 19, drowned at a massive Memorial Day pool party. The apartment management said the party was not authorized.

Police have not given a description of the shooter or given a motive in the case of the fatal shooting which happened Tuesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (404)577-TIPS(8477).
