UPDATE: Man shot, killed at DeKalb apartment complex

A man was shot and killed in DeKalb County Tuesday evening, police said.

The shooting happened at an apartment complex in the 2800 block of Misty Waters Drive near Candler Road about 7:15 p.m., DeKalb police spokesman Sgt. J.D. Spencer told AJC.com.

The victim was found in the parking lot at the Spring Valley Apartments and pronounced dead at the scene.

A white vehicle was seen leaving the area after the shooting, Spencer said.

Police told Channel 2 Action News the victim was a 36-year-old man. Authorities have not released his name.

An investigation is ongoing.

Witnesses said they heard one shot and saw the victim on the ground, the news station reported.

“They said he’s lying dead in the street,” Eric Greene, a friend of the victim, told Channel 2. “So I came over and saw police everywhere, and I just went back to the house. I couldn’t even take it.”

It was the second shooting at the apartment complex in several months. In July, a 60-year-old woman was shot when a bullet crashed through her window as she slept. She was struck in her arm but survived the shooting.
