Earlier today, a few men were seen arguing in front of a rooming house in the 100 block of West Lake Avenue in Atlanta. A witness in the area heard them. The witness says that one of the men claimed to have gotten stabbed by the man who later got shot.
The victim, Ernest Baker Jr., is 31 years old. After the argument, the two men left but came back later on and opened fire on the rooming house. When they realized their shots were missed, they went into the house, entered Baker’s bedroom and shot him multiple times in the chest.
There were five witnesses of this shooting who contacted police. When police arrived at the scene, they rushed Baker to Grady Memorial Hospital, but it was too late.
Police will continue to investigate this case.
