Man shot in parking deck of Dunwoody hotel

It was not clear if the victim, whose name was not released, was a hotel guest. No suspects have been identified, Parsons said.

Another shooting in April at the Embassy Suites parking deck killed an 18-year-old Atlanta man. Phazeon Harris was shot in a vehicle April 25 and died at the scene. Police have accused another 18-year-old, Gemero Anderson of Lithia Springs, of murder in his death.
