Original, 11/17/2017: (Buford, Georgia)  The Gwinnett County Police Department is currently investigating a homicide on Montauk Hill Drive in Buford.  Officers were originally dispatched to the home around midnight. 

Based on the preliminary investigation, an adult male was just returning home from a security job outside of Gwinnett County.  The man was on his front porch preparing to enter the home when he was shot. 

Several family members from inside the home heard the gunshots and went outside to investigate the source.  That’s when they found the victim on the porch.  Family members tried to render aid until an ambulance could arrive. 

The Gwinnett County Fire Department determined that the victim was deceased, and Homicide Investigators were dispatched.  After arriving at the home, detectives secured a search warrant, and the Crime Scene Unit began processing the scene. 

There is no significant dispatch history for the home within the past year.  Family members remained on scene to meet with investigators.  No suspects have been identified, and we are seeking tips in this case. 

The name of the victim is not being disclosed at this time.
