A DeKalb County firefighter was found dead at a Stone Mountain fire station during a shift change Wednesday morning, an official confirmed to the AJC.
Barry Everett, 42, a nine-year veteran of the department, was discovered about 8 a.m. at Fire Station 25 on Rockbridge Road. He was assigned to the station’s B shift, fire Capt. Dion Bentley said. The cause of death has not been determined, he said, and an investigation into what happened is still in the early stages.
“There's nothing suspicious at this point,” Bentley told AJC.com. “It's just unfortunate.”
The department will announce funeral and procession arrangements once they are finalized.
