DeKalb County Police say a passerby leaving a Planet Fitness gym saw a man with a gunshot wound to the head lying along an access road to a Decatur shopping plaza Thursday morning.

He was found around 1:30 a.m. near South Hairston Road, reports WSB TV.

The victim was found at the entry to the Hairston Shopping Center at 2532 South Hairston Road, DeKalb police spokesman Capt. Stephen Fore said.

The man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he died, police said.

“Detectives are working to locate witnesses that may have observed anything,” Fore told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Police said the victim was not carrying any identification and the motive for the shooting is unknown.

Officers are asking for the public’s help to identify the victim and a suspect.
