ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Authorities have released the name of the man found dead last week in the parking lot of a townhome community in northwest Atlanta.

Atlanta police said officers responded to a call around 6 a.m. Thursday a person shot at 2030 Main Street at a new development called One Riverside on Main.

Police said they found a man dead from apparent gunshot wounds. An Atlanta News First crew saw detectives gathering evidence near a red Camaro with a shattered window and a white van that was apparently riddled with bullets.

Tuesday morning, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the deceased man as Corey Jackson, 26.

Police said the murder was connected to a simultaneous incident about a mile away. Officers responded to an apartment complex on Abner Terrace and found a man who’d been shot. He was transported to a hospital but did not survive.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office identified him as Jalen Curtis, 19.

Police said they recovered a vehicle at the apartment complex on Abner Terrance that’s believed to be tied to both shooting scenes.

“At this time, it appears these incidents are related, and the investigation remains active and ongoing,” police said.
