Another violent weekend in metro Atlanta ended Sunday evening with a deadly shooting at a South Fulton park.

Meanwhile, an anti-violence rally was underway in the ‘Welcome All Park.’

Community leaders said more needs to be done to get a handle on growing crime in the area.

Police say they have a person of interest in custody in this case.

In downtown Atlanta, police are investigating after a body was dropped off with a gunshot wound at Grady Memorial Hospital on Sunday.

Police are still working to identify the person’s identity.
