Police say that on Nov. 19, officers responded to reports of shots at the Carmel Creek Apartments, located in the 3600 block of Buford Highway. Police found 20-year-old Cesar Godinez-Nava in the doorway of his apartment, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Godinez-Nava was later pronounced dead at a local hospital. 

Police say an unknown suspect shot Godinez-Nava. Anyone with information is asked to call Brookhaven Police at 404-637-0636, or submit anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers by calling 404-577-8477.
