Posted: Updated:

Atlanta police are investigating after a late-night fatal shooting happened outside a well-known area recording studio.

Street Execs Studio at 1740 Defoor Place in northeast Atlanta was the scene of an apparent homicide.

According to Lt. Charles Hampton with the Atlanta Police Department, authorities responded to the studio around 11 p.m. Friday night where they found a man in his 20s shot. 11Alive's crews on the scene report at least 50 shell casings on the ground outside the studio and police have confirmed one dead. They don't believe anyone else was hit or killed in the shooting.

Authorities have identified the victim as 28-year-old Trentavious White, although several local rappers have took to social media identifying him by his rap persona, Bankroll Fresh. News of the the rapper's death spread quickly online, and early Saturday morning "RIP Bankroll Fresh" was a top trending topic on Twitter, with many rappers expressing their shock at the news.

Street Execs Studio is known for work with several well-known artists, perhaps the most notable being College Park native 2 Chainz. But the artist isn't alone with other local acts, including Cap 1, Skooly, Travis Porter and Young Dolph all being listed on the studio's website as having ties to the location.

But outside the music world, and in the nearby neighborhood, opinions of the location have been mixed.

In November of 2015, 11Alive's Jeremy Campbell reported that neighbors in the Underwood Hills Neighborhood Association have blamed the studio for recent shootings, assaults, car break-ins and other repeated crime in the area.

Owner Charley Jabaley responded to those complaints and said that he met with city leaders about safety and his future there. He also told 11Alive that he's worked to bring in new security and a new studio manager in an effort to keep noise and other problems down.

Police were waiting for a search warrant to get inside the studio to look for clues. At this time, police have not released information regarding suspects or a possible motive.
