A 20-year-old man was shot to death late Thursday night at an apartment complex in southwest Atlanta.
On Friday, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office identified him as Mr. Orlando Young, of Atlanta.
Police said they have yet to determine who shot him and why. They are also trying to piece together the details of what happened.
The investigation began around 11:45 p.m. when detectives responded to the Brentwood Village Apartments at 1975 Alison Court where they found the man already dead in Apt. D2, police spokeswoman Officer Kim Jones said.
Mr. Young had been shot several times, Officer Jones said.
Investigators are trying to determine whether robbery was a motive and if anything was taken.
Still, “It’s hard to tell,” Atlanta police Capt. Paul Guerrucci told Channel 2 Action News. “There was some disarray in the apartment.”
It’s unclear who found the man and called police. It's also unclear how the killer may have entered the home.
