Atlanta police have identified a man who was found dead in the doorway of a home in northwest Atlanta early Thursday morning.

Officers responded at about 3 a.m. to the home on Grand Avenue, which is about half a mile from Police Precinct One.

Captain Tim Peek, the night commander for the department, said Jimmy Rushin Jr., 30, of Riverdale, had an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

"The person who called it in was somewhat of a friend of the family and noticed the injury and then immediately turned around and made the call to 911," Peek said.
