A man was shot early Wednesday morning in a southeast Atlanta apartment, and police said he may not only have opened the door to the shooter but gave the person direction as well.
The shooting happened about 1:30 a.m. at the Thomasville Heights apartment at 350 Thomasville blvd., according to Atlanta police.
When the first officer arrived, he found Mr. Henry Owens lying on the floor, bleeding from his right leg inside the back door, police spokesman Sgt. Gregory Lyon said.
The man was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition, police said.
Several witnesses who were in the apartment at the time told police that Mr. Owens was on the phone with someone giving directions to the apartment shortly before he was shot.
“The witnesses then stated that the victim answered the door shortly after the call and then heard a single shot, followed by the victim screaming for help,” Sgt. Lyon said.
One of the witnesses advised seeing a man with dreads and dressed in a black shirt with running from the apartment along with at least two other suspects.
