Gwinnett County police are investigating the shooting death of a 21-year-old man after they were called to a site in unincorporated Lilburn.
About 3:40 p.m. Saturday, officers were dispatched to the 4000 block of Darling Court off Killian Hill Road, Sgt. Jake Smith said.
Police found a passenger car in the parking lot of a day care facility, Smith said. The driver, a woman, said the man had been shot. The man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The victim has been identified by police as Curtis Oldham of Lawrenceville.
It’s likely that the shooting occurred elsewhere and that the parking lot was a convenient place for the driver to seek help for the victim, Smith said.
“The possibility this shooting is related to a drug deal is also under investigation,” Smith said.
The victim’s identity was not released, pending notification of next of kin. Further details were not available.
Anyone with information about this case can contact police at 770-513-5300. To remain anonymous, tipsters should contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
