A west Georgia man is behind bars, accused of a fatal shooting outside a Marietta gas station Tuesday.

Officers responded to the Exxon at the intersection of Atlanta and Austell roads about 6:45 p.m. after receiving a call about a person shot, Cobb County police spokesman Sgt. Wayne Delk said.

They arrived to find 41-year-old Hubert Lamar Burtz of Mableton dead at the scene.

Few details about the shooting have been released, but an investigation led to the arrest of 28-year-old Justin Colt Shaw of  Tallapoosa.

Shaw was booked into the Cobb County jail Wednesday on charges of murder and aggravated assault, online records show. He remains held without bond.

Anyone with information about Burtz’s death is asked to call Cobb police at 770-499-3945.
