JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) — Authorities are investigating whether a dead body found outside a house in Jonesboro is a burglary suspect who was shot by a homeowner.

Clayton County Police Sgt. Kevin Hughes tells WSB-TV a Jonesboro couple returned home Saturday night and found three men inside their house rummaging through their belongings.
