A man was shot and killed outside of a home in a southwest DeKalb County neighborhood early Friday morning.
Officers were called to a house on Huntwood Drive, just off Boring Road, shortly after midnight after getting reports of a person shot, a DeKalb police spokesperson said. The man, who was not publicly identified, was already dead from a gunshot wound when police arrived.
No one has been arrested and police did not say if a suspect had been identified.
The shooting took place in a residential neighborhood of single-family homes near Bob Mathis Elementary School, about a half-mile from Flat Shoals Parkway.
Detectives have opened a homicide investigation, but officials have not released any other details about the incident.
