    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Gwinnett County police are investigating the shooting death of a teen Saturday night.

    The 19-year-old victim was found dead at 4623 Grove Lake Street. Police described the area as "quiet."

    Witnesses told police a group of teens were fighting in the parking lot of the neighborhood’s swim and tennis area just before 6 p.m. when one was shot.

    Officers arrived at the scene and found Jacquorrius Madison with a gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital where he later died.


     “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.
