Cobb County police arrived at the scene at 6 a.m. on April 29 after receiving a call about an active shooter. As police searched for the gunman inside the facility after the area had been secured, the suspected gunman was found dead — most likely from a self-inflicted gun shot wound, according to Fox News.
