A man was found dead inside a DeKalb County home after being shot multiple times Wednesday night, police said.

Officers responded to the 3000 block of Monterey Drive at about 7:10 p.m. regarding a person shot call. Police spokesman Lt. Shane Smith said authorities found a man believed to be in his 40s inside of the home dead with multiple gunshot wounds. Police confirmed the home did not belong to the victim but did not elaborate as to how he got inside.

Homicide investigators responded to the scene and police said they believe a dispute between the victim and gunman occurred prior to the shooting.

The victim’s name has not been released pending notification of next of kin. No details on a suspect were provided, only that officers had promising leads.

“We are following up on several promising leads with the suspect, but do not have additional information to release at this time,” Smith said.
