Man shot, killed while sitting in car

LAWRENCEVILLE - Police are investigating a shooting that occurred Wednesday night at a local apartment complex.

Police received a call around 9:30 p.m. of shots fired at the Tanglewood Park Apartments, located at 5355 Sugarloaf Parkway in Lawrenceville, said Gwinnett County police spokesman Cpl. Darren Moloney.

When police arrived, an unidentified black man was found shot to death in a white four-door Mazda parked in front of Building 2, Moloney said.

Preliminary reports reveal that the shooting occurred inside the car, and there were at least two people in the car at the time of the shooting, possibly more, Moloney said.

"Nothing indicates that the shooting took place from outside the vehicle," Moloney said.

No suspects had been arrested as of press time, but police were holding a man Wednesday night in what Moloney called "investigative detention."
