The incident was reported Thursday as the victim sought to enter his apartment complex.

Dunwoody Police are seeking a suspect who pointed a gun at a man in his car waiting to enter his apartment complex in east Dunwoody.

Witnesses described a scene where the gunman pointed the firearm at the victim, who was not named, while the victim was waiting for the entrance gate to open.

That's about as south as you can get in Dunwoody.

We *NOW* have an east, west, north, and south Dunwoody? What are the boundaries, i.e., north of Mt. Vernon=north?

Where is the best place to live?

Yup "South Central "-- a high crime area whether it be in LA or Dunwoody.

Well, to clarify, I and everyone I talk to consider the Georgetown area east Dunwoody. Renaissance is the "eastern gateway" as it has been labeled by the city. I marked it 3.5 miles from Winters Chapel Road - the eastern boundary. The idea was to locate this - not stigmatize it. But yeah it's south and east. Comparisons to other notorious areas is silly and clearly not the intent here.

Thank you, Jason.

Best place to live is Lakeview Oaks. But please keep it a secret.

My thanks to you, also, Jason, for clarification.

You are correct, Make Mine. Good clarification

Mr. Caldwell - that is a remark that I would expect from the drunk, but it's quite a surprise to hear that kind of stupidity coming out of yours.
