The Atlanta music community has lost a prominent music producer and engineer.

One of Clinton “D-Billz” Dorsey’s business partners tells FOX 5 the producer was shot at a Brookhaven apartment complex on Thursday morning.

Police confirmed that a shooting happened around 11:48 a.m. at the Arium Lenox Park Apartments on the 2100 block of Gables Drive.

While authorities say a man was found at the apartment complex with a gunshot wound to his chest, they have not identified the victim in the shooting as Dorsey.

Kal Austin, his business partner, said the elder Dorsey was with his son, 23-year-old Ed Dorsey, visiting him at his apartment Thursday. Austin says he had stepped out for a moment and that’s when the Dorsey’s got into an argument.

Brookhaven police say Ed Dorsey had a gun.

“That argument turned to being physical, and that turned to Mr. Dorsey, retrieving a firearm, and shooting Clinton Dorsey,” said Brookhaven Police Sgt. John Clifford.

Ed Dorsey was booked into the DeKalb County Jail.
