1. Police are investigating after a burning cross and chunks of deer meat were left in front of a Woodstock home earlier this week. The motive is unclear, but a warning sign included the words "Don't come back again, we've got guns and stuff."


As 'wesleywhatwhat' pointed out in the comments below, one of the residents said %22Don't come back again, we've got guns and stuff%22 as a warning to whoever the perps were. Regrettably, I misread the original article.

2. Rapper Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly, one half of the 1990's hit duo Kris Kross, was found dead in his Atlanta home yesterday afternoon. Police are investigating it as a possible drug overdose, the AJC reports, though the exact cause has not been determined. Hop over to Crib Notes for continuing updates.

3. The Lakewood area around Aaron's Amphitheater has been dubbed the ninth most dangerous neighborhood in America by neighborhoodscout.com.

"This is a nice, quiet neighborhood," resident Renae Mitchell told Channel 2 Action News. "I don't know where the data comes from, but it's not true."

4. Atlanta ranks even higher in the likelihood it'll get hit by a tornado compared to other U.S. cities, coming in at number eight on a list compiled by the Weather Channel.

5. A new Falcons stadium design that may probably never come into existence already has a stupid nickname. Regardless of the design, there's also that sticky issue of relocating a historic 151-year-old church.

6. And last but not least, Fulton County police corporal David Williamson helped deliver a baby on the side of the road earlier this week. To that we say:
