A man is dead after a shooting Wednesday at a DeKalb County motel on Wesley Club Drive, police Maj. Stephen Fore said.

Jordan Morris, 22, was identified on Thursday as the victim, Fore said. 

That road was blocked about 4:30 p.m., and residents of the nearby Wesley Club Apartments had to enter their complex via Snapfinger Drive, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The motel is just off Wesley Chapel Road.

No other details were immediately available.

Early Wednesday, a 40-year-old man was found shot multiple times at the Gulf American Inns on Flat Shoals Road in DeKalb.

And earlier in the week, DeKalb police investigated a shooting in Lithonia. Jonathan Pringle, 27, was shot and killed Sunday inside an apartment on Parc Chateau Drive.
