DeKalb Police investigate a deadly shooting at the Lancashire Apartments.

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - A man was shot and killed inside a DeKalb County apartment late Sunday, police said.

A woman at the Lancashire Court apartments in Stone Mountain called 911 just before midnight and told police the door of an upstairs apartment was left open and she thought it was suspicious.

Officers found the body of a man inside the apartment’s living room. Police told Channel 2’s Darryn Moore the man was shot in the head.
