7 Are Found Shot to Death in Home

July 13, 1999|From Times Wire Reports

Seven people were found shot to death in an Atlanta home, with the only survivor an 11-year-old boy who hid in a closet for hours after he was wounded. The motive for the fatal shootings of three adults and four children was unclear, but police were investigating whether one person killed the others and himself. A neighbor said the boy, identified by neighbors as Antonio Briskey, told her his stepfather had shot "everyone in the house." Officers were called to the scene in the afternoon after the boy, who was shot in the elbow, sought help from neighbors. Family members and neighbors said the dead included a woman, her sister and four of their children.
