Police: No threat to public after body found in DeKalb

DeKALB – City police and the DeKalb County coroner were called Tuesday afternoon to Greenbrier Road where a body was discovered in a second-story apartment.

Although the Annie Glidden North neighborhood has been the site of a number of violent crimes in the past couple of months, DeKalb police Cmdr. Steve Lekkas said the incident does not pose a threat to the public.

Police responded about 2:30 p.m. to 930 Greenbrier Road and called the coroner and investigators to the scene. The road and sidewalk were not blocked off to traffic or pedestrians.

Greenbrier Road was the site of a shots-fired incident in October, in which about 20 rounds were fired but no one was injured. Police Chief Gene Lowery has said that incident had the most significant potential for a shooting death that the police have seen in a long time.

Lekkas, however, said Monday’s death poses no safety threat to the public and does not appear to be related to any shooting.

Deputy Police Chief John Petragallo said the investigation is only in its beginning stages, and it’s too soon to determine a cause of death.

Investigators and the coroner were still at the scene about 4 p.m.
