Thomas told reporters at the scene that it's his understanding that the resident called 911 after the shooting. He says his office was awaiting information from the county coroner on the identities and ages of the victims.

No other information was immediately released early Monday.

Conyers is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) southeast of Atlanta.
