Lilburn, GA-  Gwinnett County police are investigating a shooting that happened just after noon at the Intown Suites on Hwy 78.

Witnesses staying at the hotel say they heard a series of loud noises that they later learned were gunshots and found a man lying on the second floor balcony.

Police identified the victim as 50 year old Vincent Newsome.

Jason Burnett and his wife Leila tried to help the Newsome.

"I just told him to stay still and help was on the way. Seeing him there was really upsetting, I've never seen anyone shot," said Lelia Burnett.

Police say Newsome was out in the parking lot of the Intown Suites washing and detailing a friend's car. 

"Newsome took a break and went to his room on the second floor.  When he was headed back down someone attacked him there in the breezeway," said Sgt. Brian Doan.

At least one person thinks they saw the suspect as he ran moments after the shooting and gave a description to police.
