Police find man shot dead in Gwinnett parking lot

Officers were responding to a 'trouble unknown' call when they found the victim's body.

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — Gwinnett Police are investigating after finding a man dead of a gunshot wound on Thursday afternoon outside of Lawrenceville.

The scene of the apparent shooting was in the 1500 block of Riverside Parkway just south of Lawrenceville-Suwanee Highway outside of Lawrenceville.

Details are still very limited, though, Gwinnett Police Cpl. Ryan Winderweedle reports that the victim was apparently shot once. He added that police were initially responding to a "trouble unknown" call in reference to a man lying in the parking lot.

"When the units arrive they find the male deceased outside of a car," Winderweede said. "The medical examiner was called to investigate."

However, the medical examiner investigation soon uncovered that the victim had been shot, leading to the homicide investigation that is now underway.

No further details on the circumstances of the shooting or details on a possible suspect have been released at this point. The victim has not yet been publicly identified pending the notification of family but was described as a middle-aged man.
