Police attempting to serve a warrant at Gwinnett County apartment finds the suspect dead inside.

It happened at the Fields at Peachtree Corners apartments off Hillandale Drive on Tuesday. Gwinnett County police said the SWAT team was serving a warrant at the apartment when they made the discovery.

According to Gwinnett County Police, the warrant was in connection to a deadly shooting in April in front of a convenience store on the 3300 block of Peachtree Corners Circle. 

In their investigation, police say they determined that 22-year-old Aaron Woods shot and killed 22-year-old Kendall Reid after an altercation outside of the store. Police described Reid and Woods as "family acquaintances," who met up at the location of the murder. 

On Tuesday, deputies say they located Woods at the apartment complex but were unable to make direct contact with the suspect.

After several hours, officials say the SWAT team entered the apartment and found Woods dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The investigation into Woods's death is ongoing.
