Loved ones of attorney Adina Parson held a vigil Sunday as the Sandy Springs shooting victim remained in critical condition following surgery at Grady Hospital.
Parson suffered eight gunshot wounds, three in the head, on Friday night at the Residences of Morgan Falls Apartments. She was found in the breezeway of her apartment building. Parson is an attorney for the Georgia Department of Public Health. Police say they do not have a motive in the shooting.
Chief Terry Sult told Fox Atlanta News that the community is concerned about the shooting. “She is one of these innocent victims," Sult said. "Often times we deal with crimes where people are living high -risk lifestyles. In this case it appears She was a very low-risk lifestyle, and it’s very very concerning to the community as a whole, particularly to her family and her faith community”
A friend of Parson’s posted a comment on the Sandy Springs Patch Facebook page: “I went to college with the victim. She was a church going woman and I sincerely hope that she survives. I am guessing wrong place at the wrong time.”
Sandy Springs Police Capt. Steve Rose told Patch the shooting appears to be unrelated to the incident on April 14, when a drug deal gone bad, at the apartment complex resulted in the fatal shooting of 28-year-old Patrick Placide. His cousin Jeanlouis Willy, 28, was also shot. He was later treated and released from North Fulton Hospital.
