Young father of 3 fatally shot at Gwinnett home

A man was shot and killed early Saturday morning at a home in Gwinnett County, police said.

Shortly before 2 a.m., officers were called to a home on Oak Vista Court in unincorporated Lawrenceville, where they found a man dead from several gunshot wounds. Authorities did not say if anyone else was present at the time of the shooting or what may have led up to it.

The victim was identified Monday as 21-year-old Jonathan Royce Wiley Jr. by Gwinnett police. His mother, Jessica Holsey, told Channel 2 Action News that he lived at the home with his three children and other family members.

“He was a good boy. I don’t know who did this, but my boy didn’t deserve this at all,” Holsey said.

The motive in the shooting remains unclear, police added.
