DeKalb County police investigate shooting death

Posted: Updated:

DeKalb County police are working on a homicide case after a man found shot in the stomach in the back seat of a car died at Grady Memorial Hospital.

The man was found at the Citgo on Columbia Drive, not far from Interstate 20.

Officers were called to investigate after the store clerk called 911 to report someone appeared to be shot in a car in the store's parking lot.

Officers arrived to find the victim bleeding in the back seat of a maroon Nissan Altima.

"The subject was shot in the abdomen area," said DeKalb County Police Lt. Dane Cunningham. "EMS responded and transported the subject to Grady Memorial Hospital where he is reported to be deceased."

Investigators believe the man was shot at another location and driven to the gas station by someone who fled shortly after stopping the car.

The DeKalb County Major Felony Unit is investigating the shooting.
