Authorities probing fatal shooting outside DeKalb County sports bar

Police are investigating a deadly shooting that took place near a DeKalb County sports bar early Saturday morning. The incident occurred around 3:45 a.m. at DaBomb Sports Grill on Evans Mill Road in Lithonia. Authorities responded to the scene and discovered a 34-year-old individual with multiple gunshot wounds in a nearby parking lot. They apprehended 38-year-old Henry Anderson in connection with the crime, and he was taken to DeKalb County Jail. Anderson is facing charges of malice murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, as well as an outstanding arrest warrant from Gwinnett County for allegedly escaping from law enforcement.

The owner of DaBomb Sports Grill stated that the shooting occurred in an area with trees in front of his establishment, situated behind a Citgo gas station. He explained that two men had come to the sports bar to use the restroom after being turned away by another nearby restaurant. The security guard at the grill mentioned that the men were required to pay to enter the premises. Following this, the men went behind the gas station to relieve themselves, where one of them was shot by what appeared to be a homeless individual, as per the owner’s account. He claimed that surveillance cameras captured the incident.

As the investigation is ongoing, more information about this tragic event will be shared as it becomes available. Stay tuned to Atlanta News First for updates on this story. Copyright 2024 WANF. All rights reserved.
