A mass shooter who killed four people in a quiet Georgia neighborhood has been shot dead by police.
Henry County Sheriff Reginald Scandret confirmed to WSBTV that Andre Longmore, 40, was killed in a manhunt Sunday afternoon.
A Henry County deputy and a Clayton County police officer were also injured in the shooting, but were reported conscious.
However, the deputy was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Police say Longmore opened fire on residents in the Dogwood Lake section of Hampton, killing three men and a woman before running away Saturday. The identity of the deceased has not been released.
Andre Longmore, 40, was killed in a manhunt on Sunday – just a day after he went on the run.
At a press conference Saturday, Hampton Police Chief James Turner said detectives are investigating at least four crime scenes that are close to each other. He declined to discuss a possible motive.
The first call about the shooting came in around 10:45 a.m. in the Dogwood Lake subdivision of Hampton, a small town of about 8,000 residents about 30 miles from Atlanta, Georgia.
In that case, neighbor Frankie Werth said he heard a gunshot as he reached his living room window to open the blinds to figure out how many yards he could work.
After hearing the gunshots, he said he ducked ‘for a second’ then looked back out the window.
‘You know, when you do the incoming, you know where it’s coming from,’ Worth, a Marine Corps veteran, told The Associated Press.
He said he saw Andre jerking the back of a silver handgun with his hand.
The suspect opened fire in a small white car driven by another neighbor whom Worth described as an ‘older white gentleman.’
He said the shooting happened at the end of a cul-de-sac, with Longmore about 12 feet away from the car.
Police Chief James Turner of the Hampton Police Department said detectives are investigating at least four crime scenes that are close to each other.

At first, Worth said he thought he was witnessing a road rage incident, but said Longmore was driving very deliberately.
The suspect appeared to assess whether he needed to be shot again, Werth said, and then “started walking casually” toward the subdivision entrance before accelerating “at a rapid pace.”
After the shooting, Longmore fled in a black GMC Acadia.
Ron Foster, who lives on the main road outside the cul-de-sac, said Longmore drove through his and his neighbor’s yards, destroying multiple decorative windmills and leaving tire tracks still visible the next day.
Foster said he didn’t know at the time that multiple people had been shot, but said he got a call from a friend who was a retired cop.
‘He called me and said, “Ron, you all stay or go somewhere. We did.”
Frankie Worth, a resident of the Dogwood Lakes housing development, described how she witnessed her neighbor’s shooting.

After hearing news of the mass shooting, Foster recounted that Longmore once approached him while he was mowing his lawn.
‘He came up to me and said, ‘You’re the police, aren’t you?’ said the neighbor. ‘He came up to me and tried to argue with me.’
Longmore was wanted on four separate warrants.
