Man shot outside DeKalb house

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- A man was shot twice while smoking outside a DeKalb County house Wednesday morning.

It happened at around 2 a.m. in the 3500 block of Pleasant Brook Village Lane.

DeKalb County Police said the victim stepped outside for a cigarette. The victim's friend, who was still in the house, heard gunshots and ran outside, where he found the injured victim.

Police said the victim was shot once each in the shoulder and head. He was alert and conscious when he was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

The shooter got away in a gray Pontiac. A similar car was later found abandoned on the Interstate 285 exit ramp to Lavista Road; police are investigating to determine if it was the same Pontiac seen leaving the crime scene.

Investigators have not yet named a suspect or given a motive for the shooting.
