Gwinnett police: Victim shot in face expected to survive

NORCROSS, Ga. -- Police believe a shooting victim will survive despite a gunshot wound to the face.

West Precinct officers with the Gwinnett County Police Department were dispatched to the 1000 block of Sterling Court outside of Norcross on Wednesday.

There, they found a man with gunshot wounds to the face and arm. He was immediately transported to Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville for treatment of serious injuries.

The incident apparently began when the victim got into an argument with two to three other people – possibly Hispanic men – and was shot.

Police said two other people were inside the home at the time of the shooting but neither claim to have seen the incident.

The suspects were last seen fleeing in a white car.

Police said the victim resides at the home but are unsure of his relationship with the suspects – if any.

However, police believe robbery may have been a motive.

Anyone with information on the case – case number 16-019801 is asked to contact the robbery unit at 770-513-5300.

Tipsters can also remain anonymous by contacting Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. The organization can also take anonymous information at www.crimestoppersatlanta.org.  Those with information that leads to an arrest and indictment are eligible for a $2,000 reward.
