A man was shot and left to die in the middle of a southwest Atlanta street early Wednesday morning. So far, police have no suspect and no motive for the shooting.
They also have no details on the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the victim as Darrell Hall, 31, of Union City. It’s unclear what the man was doing in the area at the time of the shooting, police said.
The investigation began around 3:30 a.m. when officers responded to 1611 Orlando St. after getting a report of a person shot, according to Atlanta police. When the first officer arrived, he found the man dead in the middle of the street, police spokeswoman Officer Kim Jones said.
Hall had been shot multiple times, police said. So far, they have not found any witnesses to the shooting, they said.
Atlanta police investigators along when investigators from the medical examiner’s office and the Fulton County District Attorney’s office responded to the location to investigate, Officer Jones said.
Etha Hall told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the victim was her grandson.
She said her grandson, who she raised “from 10 years old to 16,” was very active in Greater Rising Star Baptist Church on Campbellton Road, the paper reported.
“Went to Sunday school, went to church every Sunday, and was a member of the youth ministry,” she said. “I don’t know of any enemy he had. He was very friendly. He would give you the clothes off his back.”
