A former Anniston resident was found dead with a gunshot wound in Carrollton, Ga., early Thursday morning, according to the coroner there.

Twenty-eight-year-old Adrian Wordlow’s body was found on a street in Carrollton with a single gunshot wound to the torso, according to Carroll County Coroner Keith Hancock.

Asked about the circumstances of Wordlow’s death, Hancock referred questions to Carrollton police. Efforts to reach police investigators there on Friday were unsuccessful.

Though Wordlow had been living in Bowdon, Ga., he was known in Anniston as a gospel singer and had served as the youth pastor for the Life Center, a church in Anniston.
