Crime Blotter: 2 Bodies Found in SW Atlanta; Man and Woman Shootout in Motel Parking Lot

The last 2 days have been a little crazy with crime activity in SW Atlanta.

There have been a number of strange criminal occurrences to happen in Southwest Atlanta the last two days, so much so that we created this crime blotter article to try to cover all of the instances instead of reporting on them one by one.

Firstly, 2 bodies were found Monday in the area.  According to reporting by 11Alive.com, "the first body was found shortly before 7 a.m. in the front yard of a home on South Gordon Street," near Cascade and Ralph David Abernathy.  The body was found with bullet wounds, leaving police to suspect he was shot to death.

A few hours later 11Alive also reported that the body of a woman was found in a vacant house off of Cleveland Avenue, on 3rd Avenue.  The Atlanta Police Department said that they found the body while responding to a normal "person-down" call.

That is not all.

On Tuesday morning, My Fox Atlanta reported that there was a shooting between a man and woman in a motel parking lot in Southwest Atlanta.  According to their report, "police say the shooting occurred at the Extend A Suites at 4430 Frederick Drive in southwest Atlanta. They say a man and a woman got into argument in the parking lot, and fired shots at each other. Both were hit."  The two were transported to Grady Hospital, but their conditions and reasons for the shooting were unknown at the time.

"The body was found with bullet wounds, leaving police to suspect he was shot to death." Suspect? Okay.

Hi Jill, medical examiners make decisions on the cause of death, not police officers or reporters. So it is still the "suspected" cause of death. But yes, a pretty safe assumption. : )
