Gainesville Police are investigating a shooting Sunday night at the Atlanta Street apartments, the second in a week at the housing complex.

“It appears that it may have possibly been a drive-by,” Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said.

The incident, according to the Gainesville Police daily log, occurred after 10 p.m. Sunday on Atlanta Street. The victim suffered a single, non-fatal gunshot wound, Holbrook said.

The victim was identified as Lynquavius Fortson, 19. Holbrook said parties involved have been uncooperative with authorities.
