EAST POINT, Ga. (AP) - Police are working to find the person who fatally shot a security guard in the parking lot of a shopping center in East Point.

Local media report that police have identified the security guard as 32-year-old Antonio Spear of Atlanta. He was found dead Sunday morning in a white SUV.

Authorities are calling his death suspicious and say they are investigating it as a homicide.

Police say they believe Spear was shot in the SUV in the middle of the parking lot of the shopping center where he worked. They say he then stepped on the accelerator somehow and crashed into a tree about 300 yards away.

Police say a gun was found in Spear’s vehicle, but it wasn’t immediately clear if that was the weapon used to kill him.
