One man is dead and another is being sought by police after an early morning shooting in Rockdale County that investigators believe followed a night of drinking.

Conyers police told Channel 2 Action News the victim was shot in the back of the head on his front porch at the Arbor Creek Apartment Homes on South Main Street.

The victim, whose name has not been released, died at the scene. A gun was found beside his body.

“In canvassing the area, we had neighbors tell us that there had been two gentlemen, the deceased and another gentleman, drinking throughout the night,” Conyers police Capt. Jackie Dunn told Channel 2. “They became louder and louder as they got into an argument. Some neighbors heard what they thought was a gunshot.”

Police have not released a motive for the shooting.
