A man was found dead Friday morning at an abandoned home in Bankhead, police said.

Officers were called to the 500 block of Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard about 11:50 a.m. about a person down. The victim, identified as 36-year-old Undra Shorter Jr., was dead from what appeared to be a gunshot wound, according to authorities.

“He was the only person inside the house,” Atlanta police Lt. Germain Dearlove told Channel 2 Action News from the scene. ”The house appears to be an abandoned house, so we don’t know who or how many individuals hang out at this location.”

No other details about the shooting or a potential suspect were provided.

The home is next door to Lindsay Street Baptist Church and north of Kathryn Johnston Memorial Park.
