A gun found next to the body of Darryl McArthur Greene on Sunday in Burton has been identified as one stolen from a Georgia law enforcement employee.

The gun was stolen from a Fulton County Sheriff's Department employee, and was reported missing to the Clayton County Police Department March 15. It was a .40 caliber Glock model 22.

Both Fulton and Clayton counties are in the Atlanta area.

Greene, 40, was shot several times and killed about 5:30 p.m. in a public area on the side of Staffwood Road. He was with a group of people, but interviews by the Sheriff's Department have turned up little information.

The Sheriff's Department continues investigate the shooting, and anyone with information about the incident should call Staff Sgt. Fraser at 843-255-3416 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (1-888-247-6372).
