The mass shooter responsible for the death of four individuals in a tranquil neighborhood in Georgia has been shot and killed by law enforcement officials.

The manhunt for Andre Longmore, aged 40, concluded on Sunday afternoon, as confirmed by Henry County Sheriff Reginald Scandrett. During the operation, a Henry County deputy and a Clayton County police officer sustained injuries, but both are currently conscious. The deputy is being transported via air to a nearby hospital for further medical attention.

As Your Content readers know, the tragic incident occurred on Saturday night when Longmore unleashed gunfire upon residents in the Dogwood Lakes division of Hampton, Georgia. The victims, three men and one woman, lost their lives in the attack.

Their identities have not yet been disclosed to the public. Police authorities have declined to speculate on the motive behind the shootings, and Chief James Turner of the Hampton Police stated that detectives are examining multiple crime scenes in close proximity to each other.

The first report of the shooting surfaced around 10:45 am in the Dogwood Lakes subdivision, situated approximately 30 miles from Atlanta, Georgia. A witness, Frankie Worth, a Marine Corps veteran, shared his experience, explaining how he initially thought it was a road rage incident.

Worth recounted hearing a gunshot while reaching for his living room window blinds, prompting him to take cover momentarily. Upon looking back out the window, he observed Longmore holding a silver handgun with noticeable recoil.

Worth noted that the suspect seemed to have targeted a white car driven by another neighbor, described as an “older white gentleman.” The shooting occurred near a cul-de-sac, with Longmore positioned approximately 12 feet away as the vehicle departed. Longmore’s actions appeared deliberate, assessing whether further shots were necessary before proceeding to walk nonchalantly towards the subdivision’s entrance. He eventually increased his pace to a brisk stride and fled the scene in a black GMC Acadia.

During a news conference, Chief Turner directed a message to Longmore, asserting that law enforcement would relentlessly pursue him and bring him to justice, regardless of his hiding place. Prior to the incident, Longmore had been the subject of four separate warrants.
