LITHONIA, GA (CBS46) -

DeKalb County police are investigating an overnight shooting that sends a man to the hospital.

According to the county's 911 operators, the shooting happened just before midnight at the Somer Set apartments.

When officers initially arrived at the scene, patrolmen were unable to locate the victim.

A few hours later, officers returned to the complex and found a male victim.

One neighbor told CBS 46 overnight that the gunfire woke him.

"I wasn't too sure where it came from," said Damion Benson standing outside of his sister's apartment. "I just got up and checked my nieces and nephews, made sure they were straight."

Police have not said where the victim was shot, how many times he was struck or what they believe lead to the violence.
