ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – Right after a shooting claimed the existence of 27-calendar year-outdated Wyman Boyd Jr. on Saturday night, a local community is shaken. It was the 3rd shooting in southwest Atlanta in fewer than two times.

Law enforcement responded to experiences of a taking pictures at the 3700 block of Carmia Generate in close proximity to Camp Creek Parkway about 8:30 p.m. Saturday night time. Upon arrival, they found who was not alert, not aware, or breathing. He was pronounced deceased by Atlanta Hearth Rescue.

“Preliminary information and facts reveals this was not a random capturing and focused in fact,” claims Atlanta Law enforcement Lt. Germain Dearlove.

Now, law enforcement say that this isn’t the 1st time a taking pictures happened in the identical buying plaza.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigations states back again in 2018, law enforcement adopted a driver inside of a stolen Black Nissan to the parking lot outdoors the Publix immediately after a confrontation ensued, law enforcement say the driver discovered as Devin Nolley, was later on shot by officers following slamming into police cruisers making an attempt to escape.

Some citizens say they’ve been knowledgeable of shootings close by and are concerned with a absence of safety. For other buyers working errands, the fatal shooting Saturday evening will come as a surprise.

“I’m surprised truthfully. I in no way realized someone bought shot below. I believed it was a protected spot,” claimed Chase Johnson. “I will even now appear listed here at evening, but I’ll just be additional knowledgeable of my surroundings.”

Atlanta Law enforcement have explained they never want the community to be nervous and they’re searching for the suspect.

“We are working out prospects and the footage recovered,” Lt. Dearlove reported.

The taking pictures stays underneath investigation.
