CLARKSTON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a chaotic scene east of Atlanta after finding a man wounded by gunshots and a dead body outside a burning building.

Police and firefighters were called to the apartment building in Clarkston early Friday morning.

Authorities say most of the building was on fire when they arrived to find the wounded man, who was taken to a hospital.

Authorities tell WSB-TV (https://bit.ly/1r8iY5f) that a body was also found outside the building. It wasn’t immediately clear whether that person was shot or killed in the fire.

DeKalb County fire officials said a third person — a pregnant woman — was injured while jumping to escape the flames.

Fire officials say they do not know the conditions of the two people who were injured. The apartment building was destroyed.
