ATLANTA — Atlanta police are investigating the shooting death of a security guard inside a Buckhead office tower.

The shooting happened just before 5 a.m. at Tower Place, located in the 3000 block of Peachtree Road, police said.

Lt. Charles Hampton with the Atlanta Police Department told WSB in an interview that officers responded to a call of shots fired just before 5 a.m. Thursday.

They found one security guard dead on scene with another security guard is being questioned, he said. Hampton said police believe the two security guards were the only people in the building at the time of the shooting.

He said a possible argument may have prefaced the killing.

The victim has not been identified, according to Hampton.

Hampton said the victim was shot multiple times.

“We have to go through security video of the scene to see what we can pick up but we don’t believe anyone else was in the building at this time,” Hampton said.
