A 49-year-old man was found shot to death on a sidewalk in southwest Atlanta Sunday morning – and police said they don’t have a suspect or a motive for the murder.
The investigation began around 7:15 a.m. when officers responded to 1511 Olympian Way after getting a report of a man found unresponsive on the sidewalk, according to Atlanta police.
They found Mr. Farmer dead on the sidewalk, police spokesman Sgt. Gergory Lyon said. Someone had shot him in the head, police said.
Homicide detectives were on the scene for several hours Sunday searching for evidence and any witness to the crime. But it’s unclear if they found anyone who saw what happened. It was also unclear if the man was shot in the area or if his body was left there.
