It wasn’t immediately clear how the man was killed, and police said an exact cause of death would be determined by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office.
The incident comes less than a day after a Conyers man was shot and killed during a fight in a parking lot on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
Police responded to the shooting shortly before 2:30 p.m. Friday when a man called 911 and said he shot someone in self-defense. When officers arrived, they found 35-year-old Taurean Sanders dead of an apparent gunshot wound, authorities said.
Investigators believe the gunman acted in self-defense when he shot Sanders and have ruled the case a “justifiable homicide,” Avery said Saturday. No charges are expected in the deadly shooting.
