A domestic dispute led to a deadly shooting at a Gwinnett County apartment complex Sunday evening, according to authorities.

A 911 call came in about 6 p.m. reporting that a person had been shot at the Canopy Glen Apartments on Pirkle Road, just south of I-85, Gwinnett police said. When officers arrived, they found a man with a gunshot wound. The victim, whose name was not released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police did not say if they have a suspect in custody, but they said investigators are speaking with a woman who is “believed to be related to the incident.”

Investigators are still working to determine a motive, according to the department. But they believe it was related to a domestic argument.
