Police are on the scene of a deadly shooting in Buckhead Monday morning.

According to Atlanta Police, police were called with reports of a person being shot in the area of Bennet and Peachtree streets around 8:30 a.m.

When they got to the location, officials said next to a white Dodge Challenger they found a man dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

Investigators initially believed the man was connected to several reported car break-ins, but later tied him to an attempted business burglary. Police said a witness and surveillance video placed the unnamed man trying to break into a business located at 22 Bennett Street. Investigators said he entered the business and was shot by someone inside the business.

Police said the man tried to flee the scene but collapsed a short distance away.

The shooter left the scene but eventually returned to speak with homicide detectives.

Police do not believe charges will be filed in the case, but the investigation remained open as of Monday evening.
