Officers were dispatched to a shooting call in a parking lot of the apartment complex at the above address and found a man with multiple gunshot wounds and a woman with a gunshot wound. Paramedics pronounced the male deceased and transported the female to the hospital.
Detectives discovered the male victim confronted a black male whom he believed had twice broken into his vehicle. An argument ensued and the suspect pulled a gun and shot the victim.
