DECATUR, Ga. (AP) -- Two men are dead and another was hurt after a shooting that DeKalb County police believe is the result of a murder-suicide.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports police found evidence of gambling in a garage and also discovered the bodies of a 28-year-old and a 35-year-old late Friday.

Maj. Stephen Fore, spokesman for DeKalb Police, said Saturday that it appears the younger man shot the older man and then shot himself.

Fore says a 25-year-old man, who was shot in the leg, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition.

A preliminary investigation shows a fight over money started between the two dead men, whose names are being withheld pending notification of relatives.
