Police: illegal club problem in SE Atlanta

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -

Illegal clubs are popping up in vacant homes across town and police say a man was shot and killed at one of these parties over the weekend.

Cortes Dowell, 24, was shot early Sunday morning inside a makeshift club which people call the “Rocky Roll.” Dowell died at a nearby hospital.

The crime is taking place in quiet southeast Atlanta neighborhoods, complete with gambling and alcohol.

Community leaders and neighbors addressed the issue at a meeting Monday night. They are working to get the makeshift nightclubs, or pop up party houses, shut down for good.

Atlanta police say they’re on the heels of some of the "so-called clubs" and finding out what goes on illegally.
