Officers were called to the 1400 block of Bellemeade Court near Powder Springs Street about 2:20 a.m. after receiving reports of gunfire, police said Monday. They discovered 23-year-old Lamar Miles in his bed with gunshot wounds, Marietta police spokesman Officer Chuck McPhilamy said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Evidence suggests that the gunfire came from outside the house,” McPhilamy said, adding there were other people inside the home when the shooting occurred. A 22-year-old woman was grazed by a bullet in the shooting but was not taken to the hospital.
