A Buford man returning home from his security job was shot and killed on his porch overnight Thursday, according to Gwinnett County Police.

Police identified the man Friday morning as George Young, 43.

Officers were dispatched to the home on Montauk Hill Drive around midnight after family members reported the shooting, according to a release from Gwinnett police spokeswoman Michele Pihera.

Pihera said several family members inside the home heard the gunshots and went outside to investigate when they found the victim on the porch. Family members tried to help until an ambulance could arrive. The Gwinnett County Fire Department determined the victim was dead and police began to investigate the incident as a homicide.

Pihera said there had been no significant police dispatch history for the home within the past year, and the family was meeting with investigators.  

No suspects have been identified, and the police are seeking tips in the case. Police ask anyone who has any information to contact detectives at 770-513-5300.
