ATLANTA — Two teenagers were shot during what police said was a drug deal in a Georgia State University dormitory parking lot in downtown Atlanta Monday evening. One other person was taken into custody by authorities in the incident.
It happened in the parking lot of the Piedmont North dormitory at the corner of Piedmont Avenue and Ellis Street.
Georgia State University Police Deputy Chief Carlton Mullis said Shelton Torance Flournoy II, 19 and Jalyn Isaiah Knight, 18 drove parked their blue Honda Accord in the parking lot of the dormitory.
Then, Mullis said, armed GSU student Bryan Rhoden came out of the dorm and walked up to the car to sell the two people inside the car one pound of marijuana. The driver of the car, Flournoy, was also armed. Rhoden, Mullis said, got into the back seat of the car.
