Atlanta police are working to track down the gunman in a deadly overnight shooting in Buckhead.

Investigators found a white male in his mid-30s with a single gunshot wound to the chest on the sidewalk along Roswell Road, near Habersham.

"We do not know if [the victim] lives in this area. We'll be looking for his next of kin and try to find out why he was in this area tonight," said Capt. D'Andrea Price with Atlanta police.

A witness living on the upper level of nearby apartment homes heard the incident play out around 2:30 Saturday morning.
