Authorities have confirmed that DJ Nando, whose given name was William Fernando Barnes, was the victim, according to myfoxatlanta.com

Cindy Copeland, who lives near where DJ Nando was shot, said she heard a “very large bang” about 3:30 a.m., the ajc.com reports.

“I thought the power went out, so I checked my clock and that wasn’t it,” Copeland said. “But what grabbed my attention about 4 o’clock was a hysterical woman, on her phone, walking up and down the street, yelling, ‘My baby. My baby.' After listening to her, I realized, there’s five or six police cars out here, and that’s when I started realizing something very serious has happened down our street here.”
