The fatal shooting happened early Monday on the platform of the Five Points MARTA station.

Police are searching for two suspects after a man was shot and killed early Monday on the platform of a downtown Atlanta MARTA station.

The fatal shooting happened about 1:30 a.m. on the eastbound platform of the Five Points station, MARTA police spokeswoman Sgt. Deneya Littles said. The victim, who was shot once, was pronounced dead at the scene.

He was identified as 29-year-old Deontray C. White, according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office.

It’s unclear what prompted the shooting or if the suspect and White knew each other. Investigators on Tuesday released surveillance photos of two men wanted in connection with the killing: the suspected shooter and the man accused of picking him up from the scene.

According to police, the shooting suspect was picked up in what appears to be a silver Hyundai Sonata or Elantra made in 2018 or 2019. Anyone who recognizes the men or has information about Monday’s shooting is asked to call MARTA police at 404-848-4911.

Authorities said the suspected shooter was picked up in a silver Hyundai sedan.
