Security guard killed behind massage parlor

A security guard was shot and killed early Monday behind a northeast Atlanta massage parlor.

The shooting happened shortly after 1 a.m. outside the Gold Spa on Piedmont Road at I-85 when the victim, a security guard whose name has not been released, went out to investigate a suspicious person behind the business.

Atlanta police Lt. Keith Meadows told WSB-TV that the guard died from a gunshot to the chest.

"At this point, we have not been able to determine if there was in fact an exchange of gunfire," Meadows said.
