Gwinnett County police are investigating a homicide that occurred Monday night just outside of Loganville that they say may have been robbery related.

Police have identified the victim as 28-year-old Loganville man Marcus Gilead.

Gwinnett police were called at 8:14 p.m. after a report of a shooting at a residence on the 3500 block of Wrenwood Court, located about three miles from downtown Loganville. Police spokesman Cpl. Collin Flynn said when officers arrived they discovered an adult male, identified as Gilead, with at least one gunshot wound.

Flynn said Gilead was taken to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

Detectives responded to the scene and began canvassing the area for witnesses and evidence, Flynn said. He said the preliminary investigation indicates that the man was sitting in a vehicle in his driveway when he was approached by the suspect.

“At this time, this incident appears robbery related,” Flynn said.

Detectives are asking anyone with information to contact the police department.
