Police: Man found at gas station had been shot, run over

Posted: Updated:
FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -

Police say a man found dead at a Fulton County gas station had been shot before he was run over by a tractor-trailer.

The body was found at a Shell gas station in the 4500 block of Fulton Industrial Boulevard, and police were called to the scene around 1 a.m.

Investigators identified the man as Jarvis Hester. His body was found in an area where truckers usually park overnight to get some sleep before heading back out on the road.  

Authorities don't know if Hester was dead when he was run over. Police said it's possible that the truck's driver might not be aware that they ran someone over. They'd like to talk to any truckers that were in the area early Monday.

Police hope surveillance video from a number of cameras outside the gas station will provide more insight as to what happened.
