A 38-year-old man was shot multiple times and left to die in the parking lot of a night club early Monday morning in Sandy Springs. And police are searching for answers surrounding his death including: who shot him and why.

So far, police have not identified the victim whose next of kin has not yet been notified, they said. The shooting happened around 2 a.m. at the Taboo 2 Night Club at 6075 Roswell Road, according to Sandy Springs police.

It’s unclear who found the man and whether or not anyone witnesses the shooting. The 38-year-old man was transported to the North Fulton Hospital where he died of multiple gunshot wounds, police spokesman Cap. Steve Rose said.

So far, police have no details on the circumstances surrounding the shooting and the only information police said they have on a possible suspect is that of man who fled the scene in a Sedan.

Boy, 14, Accused of Sexual Battery

A 14-year-old boy was released to his parents’ custody after he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman Sunday in Athens.

The alleged incident happened around 4:50 p.m. at a business on Atlanta Highway, according to the Athens-Clarke County police. The 20-year-old woman told police she was shopping when a male walked up, lifted her skirt and grabbed her buttocks, police spokeswoman Hilda Sorrow said.
As the suspect was walking away, she grabbed him and yelled for help, Sorrow said. But the suspect broke free and left the store, the spokeswoman said.

The suspect’s description was given to responding officers who located him across the street and returned him to the store where they contacted his parents. When the victim learned he was 14-years of age, she decided to wait on pressing charges.
