Gwinnett police are investigating a double shooting at a Duluth-area apartment complex Saturday night that left one man dead and the other injured.

Gwinnett County Police Department officers responded to the Prescott Apartments on Centerview Drive in unincorporated Duluth at around 11:15 p.m. after witnesses called 911, saying they heard gunshots and someone screaming.

When officers arrived, they found two victims separated from each other in the woodline behind the property. Both were alive at the time.

Police said one man was shot in the shoulder, while 20-year-old Loganville resident Nicolai Manget was shot in the chest. They were both transported to the hospital, where Manget later died.

According to one of the victims, the two were walking around the apartment community when they were confronted by a “dark, shadowy figure,” who shot them.

Police continue to investigate and are asking anyone with information to contact detectives at 770-513-5300. To remain anonymous, tipsters should contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or visit stopcrimeatl.com.
