ATLANTA—A shooting in Atlanta killed three people and left one victim wounded Saturday evening, police said.

The Atlanta Police Department said officers responded to an address on Peachtree Road NE in the city’s Buckhead district Saturday.

Police said three victims in their 20s were pronounced dead at the scene and the fourth was transported to a hospital. The shooting victim who survived was “alert, conscious and breathing,” police said.

Investigators with a homicide unit responded to the scene to determine the circumstances of the shooting and the investigation was still in progress, police said.

The shooting was linked to drug activity at 3005 Buckhead Apartments, they said.

“This wasn’t like a home invasion type of scenario. We believe that the perpetrators were invited in for that drug exchange. It was some type of drug transaction that was taking place inside the apartment,” Maj. Peter Malecki told WANF.

Police did not identify the victims and there was no information immediately available about a suspect.
