ATLANTA (AP) - DeKalb County police are investigating after the body of a 17-year-old girl was found on a sidewalk.

Police tell local news media a pedestrian found the girl’s body and called 911 around 8:30 p.m. Monday. Police say she appears to have been shot to death.

Police say they have identified the teen, but they did not immediately release her name.

Investigators were trying to determine what led up to the shooting. Police told local media it’s possible the teen was waiting for a bus because her body was found near a MARTA bus stop.

Anyone with information is asked to call DeKalb County police.
