Police search for shooter in Sunday morning homicide

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Atlanta police said Marcus Farmer, 49, of Atlanta, was found dead on a sidewalk, along Olympian Way early Sunday morning. Investigators were out canvassing the scene for most of the morning, and said the victim appears to have died from a gunshot wound to the head.

They were looking for witnesses to interview, and were not able to share any leads as to who the killer might be. The shooting happened in a residential neighborhood.

"The poor guy must have laid there for a long time," said Margaret Almond, who lives in front of where the victim was discovered. "When it got light, they called, somebody saw him, called the police."

Investigators were asking anyone who might have information that could be helpful in this case to call Atlanta police.
