DULUTH, Georgia — Police say a home invasion turned deadly in suburban Atlanta when a man was shot to death and a woman and child were both wounded by gunshots in their home.

Police in Duluth, northeast of Atlanta, remain at the home near Rogers Bridge Road and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard after the Monday morning crime.

Duluth police Maj. Don Woodruff said robbery is believed to be the motive. Woodruff says witnesses told police two suspects forced their way into the home.

Woodruff says the wounded woman was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening. He said an 8-year-old child was taken to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, also with non-life threatening injuries.

Woodruff said a 4-year-old child who also lived there was unharmed.
