“It's a quiet neighborhood. We're rarely, if ever in this neighborhood,” said Gwinnett County Police Sgt. Jake Smith.
Investigators have not named suspects nor a motive in the shooting.
One neighbor said Madison and his girlfriend had just helped her with household chores days before his murder.
"Sounds like he was a well-liked young man,” Smith said.
“Detectives are now investigating what led to that shooting, what the fight was all about. If the fight was just a fight or robbery or a drug deal or something along those lines,” Smith said.
Investigators want anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS. You can remain anonymous and you may receive a reward.
