At least 1 dead, 4 injured in Atlanta medical building shooting

Washington, May 3 (Prensa Latina) One person was fatally shot and at least four others injured Wednesday in a shooting at a medical building in Midtown Atlanta, Police Department reported.

A statement from Police Department revealed the four injured people were taken to a hospital for treatment and the fifth person was pronounced dead at the scene.

Atlanta police said the suspected shooter is believed to be Deion Patterson, 24, and that he was considered armed and dangerous.

Atlanta police said there had been no additional shots fired since the initial shooting unfolded inside a Northside Medical building on West Peachtree Street in a commercial area with many office towers and high-rise apartments.

Patterson was at the medical facility for an appointment with his mother, police told NBC News. She was not one of the victims, police added.

The shooting comes as cities around the U.S. have been wracked by gun violence and mass shootings in 2023. Police sent out a photo of the suspect.

He was wearing dark pants and a light colored hoodie with the hood pulled up. He had a mask on his face and appeared to be wearing a bag across his front. Authorities asked anyone with information on Patterson’s whereabouts to call 911.

Police urged anyone in the area to secure their building and shelter in place.

Dozens of police and fire vehicles were gathered along West Peachtree Street, as officers with assault-style rifles, helmets and vests continued to arrive more than an hour after the shooting.

Many officers clustered outside the front entrance of the Northside Medical building. Multiple helicopters hovered overhead while police tried to keep traffic moving on nearby streets. Construction workers watched from the nearest corner in the Midtown neighborhood where many new high-rises are being built.
