A man who was found shot to death earlier this week inside his northwest Atlanta home has been identified. And investigators have ruled his death a homicide.

Still, it’s unclear who shot the man or why.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office on Wednesday identified the victim as Mr. Randy Cherry.

A friend of the 33-year-old victim reportedly found him shortly before midnight on Monday and called police.

The friend had gone to the home to visit, but when no one came to the door the friend looked in a window and saw the victim on a sofa in his living room, bleeding.

Someone had shot Mr. Cherry in the head, but it’s unclear when the shooting happened.

“There were no witnesses on scene nor do we have any suspects at this time,” Atlanta police spokeswoman Officer Jones said Tuesday.

Police have not released any details on the condition of the body and it’s unclear whether there were any signs of forced entry into the home.
