DeKalb County Sheriff's Deputies investigate shooting near Suburban Estates Apartments Tuesday

DeKALB – DeKalb County Sheriff's Office Deputies are on the scene of a reported shooting in the 1400 block of Twombly Road in DeKalb near the Suburban Estates Apartment Complex.

According to DeKalb Count scanner traffic, shell casings and blood were found on the scene, and officers Tuesday afternoon described it as an active crime scene.

It's unclear how many people were injured in the shooting.

Lt. Jim Burgh of the sheriff's office said that two deputies were at the Suburban Apartment Complex on an unrelated call shortly after noon Tuesday, when they were approached about bullet casings on the scene, which the deputies confirmed to be the case.

Burgh also said that preliminary details from the ongoing investigation point to a vehicle involved but that the deputies will wait to share further information until more details can be confirmed.

"We’re trying to move forward with it and we don’t have a lot to go off of yet but it’s obviously a very active scene," Burgh said.

This is a developing story.
