17-year-old shot at Dunwoody apartment complex

Police are trying to figure out who shot a 17-year-old at an apartment complex in Dunwoody on Friday.

The male teenager was found with a gunshot wound at the Arrive Perimeter luxury apartments off Asbury Square just after 5:15 p.m., Dunwoody police said in a news release. 

The teen was taken to an area hospital and is expected to survive, Sgt. Robert Parsons told

Police have not determined what led to the shooting, but investigators said the incident does not appear to be random, the release said. Parsons said there is no description of a suspect at this time.

This is the same apartment complex where a DeKalb County teacher was accused of killing his boyfriend before dying in a car wreck in Clayton County in April, previously reported.
