LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Police in Atlanta's northeastern suburbs are investigating the death of a pedestrian who was struck and killed by a Gwinnett County government van.<br />
Lawrenceville police Capt. Jeff Smith said 66-year-old Rama Sriram of Tucker was walking when she was hit by the van shortly before noon on Monday. Gwinnett fire Capt. Tommy Rutledge said firefighters found the woman unresponsive and unconscious.<br />
Smith tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/SpPhzb ) that the intersection is a four-way stop, but it was not known if Sriram was in a crosswalk when she was hit.<br />
Smith said the van belongs to the county's technical services department. He said it was driven by a county employee, who stopped at the scene.

Investigators recovered multiple guns as well as a fake training gun from the empty model home where police said a Georgia sheriff shot and critically wounded a woman, according to law enforcement documents.
An intergovernmental agreement that has been in consideration for four years that would bring turn lanes and new pavement to the intersection of McEver Road and Gainesville Street is going to wait, at least for now.
