The north Fulton city of Milton, incorporated in December, had its second homicide of the year Monday night.
A man was found dead inside a home on Harmony Court, police said. Another man, also shot, was taken from the residence to a local hospital.
Milton police said someone called 911 from a cell phone about 9 p.m. to report the shootings.
Police were still waiting to search the house late Monday night, and did not have any more information.
The department, with a little more than 20 officers, came into existence in May and covers 50 square miles.The city's biggest crime problems tend to be burglaries and car break-ins. Violence is generally tied to domestic abuse.
In June, construction worker Keith Brown, 40, was found shot to death at the Preserve at Deerfield apartments.
Investigators think that at least three people went to Brown's apartment to rob him because he often carried a large amount of cash. The trio are are believed to be tied to a prostitution service, police said. A gunfight erupted during the robbery, and Brown was shot several times.
He was able to call 911 but apparently died while on the telephone.
