Police are searching for a suspect or suspect in a shooting incident that killed three people in a suburb of Greater Atlanta.
Corporal. Michael Behera, a spokeswoman for the Gwinnett County Police Department, said that the officers responded to a call from a “person who had been shot” at a home in Lawrenceville around 3:30 pm. When they found a man outside was hit by at least one bullet. He was taken to the hospital where he died.
“Then the officers searched a house nearby and found two additional dead men inside,” she told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The motive is still unknown.”
The Crime Scene Unit and the Homicide Unit conduct an investigation.
The police did not release the ages of the three victims or indicate whether they were related. A K-9 unit and a police helicopter were brought in to search the vicinity for any potential suspects.
There were no immediate reports of arrests.
