Someone called 911 around 12:15 a.m., reporting the homicide. When officers arrived, they found the man dead in a car outside a home, GBI Special Agent in Charge Greg Ramey said.

The shooting occurred in Rising Fawn, in southern Dade County near the Alabama-Georgia state line. Ramey said investigators know why the man was in the area where he was killed. They are still working on interviewing witnesses.
