Officers were called to the Chevron station at the corner of Monroe Drive and Piedmont Circle about 5 a.m. Wednesday and found two men lying shot in the parking lot. Nembhard was still in his vehicle and waiting for police at a location across the street, Lt. Daniel Genson said from the scene.
“We were able to determine there was three people that were passengers of a rideshare vehicle,” said Genson, who command’s APD’s homicide unit. “At some point, there was an argument inside the vehicle with the driver. That argument ultimately ensued to gunfire.”
One passenger was pronounced dead at the scene and later identified as Kevin Leonard Fulton, 36, of Atlanta, according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office. A second was taken to Wellstar Atlanta Medical Center, where he was in critical condition but stable Wednesday morning. The third left before police arrived, but Genson said he does not think he will be difficult to locate.
No updates were provided Thursday on the injured and missing passengers.
Genson said evidence suggests they were standing outside the vehicle when they were shot, and the bullets were fired from inside the car. Detectives were investigating self-defense as a possible motive, but later “established probable cause to charge the shooter in this case,” a police spokesman said Thursday.
Nembhard was being held on his charges in the Fulton County Jail.
