    That”s not East Atlanta, it’s Edgewood.And that garage is dark as hell all day long.

    • Yeah, the headline says Edgewood. I think the press release said East Atlanta, and I forgot to correct it in the text as well as the headline.

    This wasn’t in the garage. Victim was standing on sidewalk in front of Barnes & Noble. This was apparently around midnight.
