Several family members inside the home at the time heard the gunshots and went outside to check, Gwinnett police Cpl. Michele Pihera said.

That’s when they found Young on the porch. “Family members tried to render aid until an ambulance could arrive,” Pihera said.


But firefighters later determined the man died on the scene.

No arrests have been made.
