KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) – Police have identified a man who was shot and killed and two others who were shot and injured at an apartment complex in an Atlanta suburb.

Cobb County police Officer Sydney Melton said in an email Monday that officers were sent to an apartment complex in Kennesaw around 11:40 a.m. Sunday. When they arrived, they found a dead man with a gunshot wound in his back and two other men who’d been shot.

The dead man was identified as 18-year-old Oluwafemi Oyerinde of Lawrenceville. The two injured men were identified as Khalil Bennett of Grayson and Jarius Bonner, both 18.

Melton says a dispute between neighbors preceded the shooting.

The apartment complex is near Kennesaw State University’s football stadium. Melton said he didn’t know whether the victims were students.
