Later, a second victim arrived at Grady with a gunshot wound to the leg, Brown said. Authorities determined that victim was injured during the same incident.
Investigators said someone fired into the man’s car while it was in motion, striking the two victims, according to Brown. No other details were available.
Police were then sent to a location along West Peachtree Place about 6 p.m. after a person was reportedly shot. Officers at the scene found a man dead of a gunshot wound to the chest.
No suspects have been arrested in either incident. The investigations are ongoing.
The fatal shootings are the latest to occur during a notably violent year in Atlanta. The city has recorded 121 homicides so far.
With two months still to go, 2020 has been Atlanta’s deadliest in more than a decade. The city had 99 homicides in all of 2019.
