    UNION CITY, Ga. - Police are looking for a man wanted for questioning after a 30-year-old father was shot to death Sunday night.

    The father was shot at Shannon Lakes Apartments on Buffington Road, where he was found just feet away from his apartment. 

    Police say the man they are looking for "should be considered armed and dangerous" and goes by the street names of “Staxk” and “Zowe”.

    He was last seen wearing a black hoodie and jeans at the time of the shooting.

    Channel 2 Action News was at the scene Sunday night when the shooting was first reported. 

    Neighbor Sugar Hardy told Channel 2's Sophia Choi that she called 911 when she heard gunshots and found the victim.

    “There’s usually kids out here. Anything could have happened. We need security out here,” Hardy said.

    Police said the man shot was 30-year-old Christopher Kindle. The victim's uncle identified his nephew to Channel 2 investigative reporter Nicole Carr.

    Neighbors told Channel 2 Action News that Kindle did not live at the apartments and was there to pick up his kids from an ex-girlfriend. 

    Kindle's death and recent other crimes in the area have Hardy and other neighbors concerned about safety.

    Choi went to the management office with Hardy to ask about increasing security, but the doors were locked. Choi also called the office twice, but the managers refused to comment.

    Hardy said the shooting is just the latest in a string of crimes at the complex. 

    Anyone with information about the shooting or the suspect's whereabouts should contact Detective Genevieve Nelson at 770-515-7835.
