The mass shooter who killed four people in a quiet Georgia neighborhood has been killed by police.
Henry County Sheriff Reginald Scandrett confirmed WSBTV that Andre Longmore, 40, died Sunday afternoon in a manhunt.
A Henry County deputy and a Clayton County police officer were also injured in the shooting but are said to be conscious.
The deputy, however, is being airlifted to a local hospital for treatment.
Police say Longmore opened fire on residents in Hampton’s Dogwood Lakes subdivision, killing three men and a woman before fleeing Saturday. The identities of the victims have not been released.
Andre Longmore, 40, died in a manhunt on Sunday, just a day after he went on the run.
At a press conference Saturday, Hampton Police Chief James Turner said detectives were investigating at least four crime scenes that are in close proximity to each other. He declined to discuss a possible motive.
The first call about the shooting came in around 10:45 a.m. in the Dogwood Lakes subdivision of Hampton Hampton, a small town of about 8,000 about 30 miles from Atlanta, Georgia.
In that case, neighbor Frankie Worth said he heard a gunshot as he went to his living room window to open the blinds and find out how much yard work he could do.
After hearing a gunshot, he said he caught himself “just for a second” and then looked out the window.
“You know, when you come in, you have to know where it’s coming from,” Worth, a Marine Corps veteran, told the Associated Press.
He said he saw Andre’s hands shake from the recoil of a silver gun.
The suspect appeared to have shot at a small white car driven by another neighbor who Worth described as a “large white gentleman.”
He said the shooting happened at the edge of a cul-de-sac, with Longmore about 12 feet away as the car sped away.
James Turner, police chief of the Hampton Police Department, said detectives were investigating at least four crime scenes that are in close proximity to each other.
At first, Worth said he thought he was witnessing a road rage incident, but said Longmore was moving too deliberately.
The suspect appeared to assess whether to fire again, Worth said, then “started casually walking” toward the entrance of the subdivision before picking up his pace to a “quick walk.”
After the shooting, Longmore fled in a black GMC Acadia.
Ron Foster, who lives on the main road outside the cul-de-sac, said Longmore drove through his yard and his neighbor’s, destroying several ornamental windmills and leaving tire tracks that were still visible the next day .
Foster said he didn’t know at the time that multiple people had been shot, but said he got a call from a friend who was a retired police officer.
“He called me and said, ‘Ron, are you staying or going somewhere. We did it.”
After hearing the news of the mass shooting, Foster described how Longmore approached him as he was mowing the lawn.
“He came up to me and said, ‘You’re the police, aren’t you?'” the neighbor said. “He came up to me and tried to argue with me.”
Longmore had been wanted on four separate warrants.
