The 45-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was a resident of the apartment complex. Police believe the victim and suspect knew each other.
Later, Dunwoody detectives and DeKalb police officers traveled to Ellenwood to look for the alleged shooter, but the man took off in a car, Parsons said.
Police chased him into Clayton County, where he drove into oncoming traffic and crashed head-on into a commercial vehicle on Bouldercrest Road near Jones Road, according to the Georgia State Patrol. The state agency is investigating the crash.
The driver died at the scene. His name has not been released.
