Furniture movers hurt in DeKalb neighborhood shootout

Police said they were called to the house on Waldrop Hills Drive on Wednesday night and found the men who’d been delivering the furniture, ages 27 and 30, shot in the driveway. A third man, now identified by authorities as shooting suspect, Larry Dixon, 26, was also shot.

Lt. Lonzy Robertson of DeKalb police said Tuesday that detectives believe Dixon, along with 24-year-old Russell Fairchild, were robbing the victims when the homeowner heard the commotion. The homeowner told police he was shot at and then pulled his own gun and returned fire.

Reporter: HE FIRST CALLED ME AND THEN HE SENT ME A TEXT MESSAGE, SAYING THAT TWO OF THEM ARE STILL IN THE HOSPITAL, RECOVERING, ONE OF THEM WAS INJURED PRETTY BADLY. MEANWHILE, THE NEIGHBORS SAY THAT ALL OF THIS TROUBLE CAME WITH THAT GROUP WHO LIVE IN THE HOUSE AND IT’S GOT TO STOP. IT WAS A BIG GUN. IT WAS A VERY BIG GUN.
