Police searching for man who entered business and opened fire, killing 1

GWINNETT COUNTY — Gwinnett County Police said a man is on the run after killing one person at a manufacturing building Friday afternoon.

Police said in an update that it appears that the victim was targeted. The victim hasn’t been identified pending notification of family.

One other person was injured running from the scene but not shot. That victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Cpl. Collin Flynn said an “active shooter” call came in just before 2 p.m. at the building on the 600 block of Satellite Boulevard. The building is just south of McGinnis Ferry Road in Suwannee.

“There was at least one male shooter who came inside the business while multiple people were inside working and opened fire,” Flynn said. “At some point while opening fire he has shot at least one victim.”

Flynn said the man ran from the business on foot and may still be in the area.

Police said they are actively searching for a suspect they describe as a man who is approximately 6 feet tall wearing a long, white flowing type of clothing with a white mask and white head piece.

Police said they are reviewing surveillance footage to try to determine the suspect’s identity.

Police are urging the public to be vigilant and report anything suspicious.

The road has since reopened.
