STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- DeKalb Investigators were working into the night Monday night after a shooting inside a deputy's home. Two people are dead, but just what happened is anything but clear.
It all started Monday afternoon, when police got a 911 call about shots fired at a home on Mountain View Pass in Stone Mountain. The home they responded to belongs to a DeKalb County sheriff's deputy.
"When our officers arrived, according to the homeowner, an unknown man had shot and killed his wife, and that he was forced to shoot and kill that intruder," said Mekka Parrish of the DeKalb County Police Department. "
Inside they found the deputy's wife, Linda Yancey, 44, dead, along with the intruder.
Neighbors said the intruder was a day laborer. They said the deputy hired him to do some landscaping. There was no word on why the laborer would have been inside the home.
Investigators towed the deputy's truck for possible evidence. They said that they are looking at a number of things, including prior domestic calls made from the deputy's home.
