Man shot, left for dead in the street

Posted: Updated:

Detectives search for a motive and a crime scene after finding a shooting victim in the street overnight.

DeKalb County officers responded to a shots-fired call at Highland Forest apartments around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. They found the victim laying in the street.

The victim was transported to an area hospital where he later died.

At this time, investigators are working to piece together unanswered questions. They want to find the shooter and the location where the victim was shot, as well as a motive.

One detective told CBS46 at the crime scene that based on the lack of physical evidence it's doubtful the victim was shot where he was found.

Detectives did not find any shell casings or blood at the scene.
