The body of a 32-year-old man was found Friday morning in south DeKalb County with multiple gunshot wounds, according to police.
Detectives, who learned about the body about 9:25 a.m., are working the scene in the 4500 block of Golf Vista Circle, spokesman Lt. Lonzy Robertson told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“The vehicle he is next to may have also been struck by gunfire,” Robertson said.
Police have not released the victim’s name, and no one has been arrested in connection with the deadly shooting.
“We don’t believe he lives in this area,” Robertson said, “but we won’t release that until we notify next of kin.”
Robertson said police are waiting on the medical examiner’s office to determine how long the body had been at that location.
This is the second time this week authorities have been called to the scene of a dead body in DeKalb County.
A man was found dead early Tuesday outside an apartment in the 2000 block of Gladeview Parkway near Stone Mountain, police said. The man, believed to be in his late 20s, was dressed for a “construction or industrial” type of job, according to police. He was wearing work boots, work pants and a hard hat.
Channel 2 Action News reported that he was shot in the head, and was shot multiple times.
We’re working to learn more about both shootings.
