DULUTH, Ga. (AP) — Police say a home invasion turned deadly in suburban Atlanta, where a man was shot to death and a woman and child were both wounded by gunshots.

Police in Duluth, just northeast of Atlanta, say they were at the scene of the Wednesday morning crime at the home near Rogers Bridge Road and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.

Duluth police Maj. Don Woodruff said robbery is believed to be the motive.

Woodruff told WSB-TV (http://on-ajc.com/1pa6Bpb) that 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 was unharmed.
