Two people are dead following an active shooter situation in a Midtown Atlanta building early Wednesday morning, according to Atlanta Police Chief Rodney Bryant.

Bryant says the Atlanta Police Department responded to the shooting at the Atlantic House Midtown and immediately engaged the shooting suspect. The suspected shooter allegedly opened fire on police.

Police say the suspected shooter was killed and the situation has ended, leaving no further threat to those in and around the building.

A woman was found dead in one of the units. Police say they believe the victim and the shooter knew each other.
