ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Police are investigating after a Georgia man was found shot to death near the home he shared with his grandmother.

Interim Athens-Clark County Deputy Police Chief Jeff Clark told The Athens Banner-Herald that the shooting happened Friday afternoon. Officers found the body of 32-year-old Rodriguez Rucker.

Police say witnesses told officers an old pickup truck left the neighborhood right after the shooting.

Clark said investigators are looking for more information about the shooting. No arrests have been reported.

Police have not released a possible motive for the shooting.

It was the second shooting of the week in Athens. Officers say 31-year-old Walter James Brown Jr. was shot to death earlier last week. Two men have been arrested and charged in Brown’s death.
