Police ID shooting victim found dead on motel balcony

ATLANTA -

Morrell Dorsey, 37, of Decatur, was found dead on the second-floor balcony of the Savannah Suites motel in east Atlanta Monday, according to DeKalb County police.

Police say Dorsey's death appeared to be a homicide, confirming there were gunshot wounds to his body.

It's not known if Dorsey was staying at the hotel when the shooting happened.

Police initially came out to Savannah Suites, located in the 4800 block of Memorial Drive, to respond to a report of a shooting. Officers, however, found it difficult to find anyone at the motel who recalled hearing any gunshots.

Some, though, did say they heard some sort of disturbance at the building.
