ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

According to the Albany Police Department, murder warrants have been taken against Donar Rollins, 60, for the murder of Natasha Monique Rollins, 43.

APD officers responded to a domestic dispute Sunday evening in the 900 block of Rosedale Avenue.

Initial reports said EMS was treating a woman and a man for injuries.

Later, police said the woman, who Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler identified as Natasha Monique Rollins, died from her injuries at the hospital.

According to police, the man, identified as Donar Rollins was responsive shortly after the shooting. Officers found him in the living room sitting in a chair with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his chin. Rollins was transported to a hospital in Macon for further medical treatment.

"We're in the process right now trying to get her to the crime lab and find out some more information, what was going on prior to that time," said Fowler. "Once we get all that information, we'll come up with a cause and manner of death and why it happened."

No one has been taken into custody.

Police said the investigation into Natasha Rollins' death is ongoing.

According to police, the deadly shooting of Natasha Rollins was not the first shooting that happened on Rosedale Avenue on Sunday.

Police responded to a call of shots fired in the 900 block of Rosedale Avenue, just before 1 p.m. Sunday.

One resident said she was fond of Rosedale Avenue. 

"I liked this street," she said. "It was quiet, peaceful."

She said she was not home at the time of the first shooting just before 1 p.m. 

"One of my neighbors told me there had been some shooting on this street," said the resident. Then, she heard about the deadly shooting of Rollins around five hours later.

"I feel awful about it," the woman said.

Several residents reported Monday that the violence over the weekend had them considering finding a new place to live.

"I'm thinking about moving," one woman said. "Yes, I'm scared, and no, that isn't all the reason I'm moving, but I'm thinking about moving."

Detectives said the first call of shots fired Sunday around 1 p.m. appears to be a case that could relate to a previous drug deal.
