Cobb Police Precinct 4 officers found Brandon Brazil, 30, dead in his unit at the Sedgefield Apartments, 1136 West Commons Lane, just northeast of Marietta, Cobb Police spokesman Officer Mike Bowman said. They had been dispatched to the location to investigate reports of gunshots at 10:46 p.m. Friday.
Bowman said police have no information on a suspect.
“It’s a whodunit,” he said.
The Cobb Police Crimes Against Persons Unit is investigating the homicide. Anyone with information is asked to call (770) 499-3945.
This is not the first time police have investigated a violent crime at Sedgefield Apartments. They found Ladonna Stallings, 23, dead there in September 2010 in an apparent murder-suicide. They believed she was killed by a man who later committed suicide in a vehicle in West Columbia, S.C.
In December 2005, a resident at Sedgefield found George Ellis Jennings, 40, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound on the ground near one of the buildings in the apartment complex. He was taken to a hospital where he later died as a result of his injury.
In November of that same year, a man was critically injured after he was thrown from a third-story window at the complex. Police said he was the victim of a home invasion and armed robbery.
