Who Was Donovan Thomas Atlanta?
Donovan Thomas was a victim of the shooting at a southwest Atlanta barbershop in 2015. On Saturday night, it happened on McDaniel Street in the Castleberry Hill area.
Thomas, a 26-year-old man, was slain and another guy in his twenties was shot in the leg, as was a 14-year-old youngster. It seems to be a drive-by shooting, according to investigators.

They don't know why the shooting happened, but they don't believe it was random. Thomas was shot many times in the upper torso, according to police. He was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital for surgery, where he eventually died.
The victims were shot outside a barbershop, according to homicide detectives, although the men are not believed to be related to the company.
The gunman or the vehicle used in the attack were not identified by police.
Several more recent shootings have occurred in the same region where the incident occurred.
