A man was shot to death early Thursday morning at an apartment complex in Marietta.

And so far, police have not arrested or identify a suspect in the shooting. They also have not released the victim’s identity, but said he did live in Marietta.

The shooting happened about 12:15 a.m. at the Pointes of Marietta apartments on Cunningham Road, according to the Marietta police.

Officers responded to the scene after getting a call about a person shot at the complex, police spokesman Detective Christopher Lindsey said.

“Upon police arrival, a black male was found lying in the parking lot, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound,” Det. Lindsey said.

Police said the man did not live at the complex and they aren't sure why he was there.

The man was transported to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital where he was pronounced dead, Det. Lindsey said.

As of late afternoon Thursday, police have not released any details on the circumstances of the shooting or a motive for the crime.
