ATLANTA - Atlanta police are investigating after someone found a man fatally shot near a park in northwest Atlanta.
Police said someone called 911 after finding the body in a wooded area.
Family members identified the man as 22-year-old Jonathan Kemp.
"He was a quiet person. He didn't bother nobody. He worked every day, you know, basically took care of his mom, paid her bills and stuff," Kemp's cousin, Danita Tolbert, said.
Detectives said Kemp was shot in the shoulder. Police said they found a gun that could be tied to the crime.
"They did locate a weapon near the deceased, and at this point in time it's still an open investigation. We have no suspects, no person of interest in the investigation at this point," Sgt. Ricardo Vazquez of the Atlanta Police Department said.
Kemp's brother, Raymond Kemp, said his brother worked at Waffle House on Christmas Day and he believes someone killed him over money.
"You know, like I said, the only motive I can think of is somebody tried to rob him to get some money. It's the holiday season," Raymond Kemp said.
Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
