LAWRENCEVILLE -- Police on Monday identified the man fatally shot by a home intruder Saturday morning as 36-year-old Yassin Mahmoud.
No arrests have been made in this case -- the second shooting at the Lawrenceville home in just over a month -- and a motive is under investigation.
Mahmoud died when the gunman walked in his 603 Adams Landing Court home at 2 a.m., confronted him through his bedroom door and opened fire.
The man fled the scene after the shooting.
Three other people in the home at the time weren't injured, said Gwinnett police spokesman Officer Brian Kelly. Witnesses told police the shooter was a black man with his face hidden.
A police report notes that officers found evidence of marijuana in the home, but Kelly said it's too early to determine if drugs were a contributing factor in the killing.
On Feb. 8, another shooting was reported at the residence.
According to a police report, 17-year-old Fuad Mohamud, a Central Gwinnett High School student, was shot in the leg, apparently by someone he knew.
In that case, Mohamud claimed he was set up by a friend in an apparent robbery, when he returned to the home's basement after paying for pizza delivery just before midnight.
It was unclear late Monday if the suspect in that case, Deandre Perkins, had been arrested.
A message left at the Mahmoud residence Monday was not returned.
Police urge anyone with information to call Gwinnett police homicide detectives at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-557-8477. A reward of up to $2,000 is possible.
