Atlanta Police are asking for the public’s help in finding the person responsible for shooting and killing a man on the afternoon of March 20.
Police said at 2:30 pm they responded to a call of a person shot at 46 Armstrong Street, not far from Children’s Healthcare at Hughes Spalding.
“Upon arrival officers found a male in his mid-thirties who had been shot at least two times,” an alert from Atlanta Police says. “The male was transported to Grady Hospital and died.”
Police said the shooting may have started as an argument between the victim and the shooter, and investigators believe the two individuals knew each other. The exact motive isn’t known at this time, police said.
