Woman shoots, kills man in East Atlanta home

ATLANTA -- One man is dead from a shooting that happened early Friday morning in East Atlanta.

A woman fired shots at a man inside a home in the 800 block of Clifton Road NE. Police were notified of the shooting at around 2:30 a.m., and arrived to the home to find a victim had died on scene. 

Capt. Paul Guerrucci said the two knew each other, and the woman who shot the man owned the home. He said the relationship between them was not clear, and police believe they did not live together.

"The two did know each other, so it's not a stranger on stranger event," Guerrucci said. 

The woman went to the hospital for a medical evaluation, Guerrucci said. 

Police will continue to investigate the reason behind the shooting.
