A 34-year-old Chattanooga man shot and killed a man in his 70s who rang the doorbell around 4 a.m. today at a home in a new subdivision off North Marble Top Road in rural Walker County, Ga., Sheriff Steve Wilson said.

Wilson said he would release details this afternoon.

“I’m headed to talk to the wife of the victim,” he said around 11 a.m. as the sheriff’s office and Georgia Bureau of Investigation were wrapping up the crime scene investigation at the house on Cottage Crest Court. “I’m not talking at this point.”

The victim’s body was removed around 10:30 a.m., and the shooter was allowed to drive off in his own vehicle.
