Sandy Springs police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred just after 9 p.m. April 11 at the Falls of Sandy Springs Apartments in the 5500 block of Roswell Road.

Patricio Vega, 32, of Mableton was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound to the abdomen soon after being transported to Northside Hospital.

Witnesses reported gunfire inside the apartment complex that night, and officers found Vega inside an apartment.

A second wounded man was found in a nearby residential area and was taken to Grady Hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the leg. Police indicated he is a black man in his late 30s, but they withheld his name.

Police are seeking at least one other man in connection with the shooting while continuing their investigation.

A police news release said a man ran from the shooting location to another apartment, where he had a brief confrontation with the resident, then fled again. The resident was not injured.
