They found Ferrell Miles, 48, of Atlanta, injured with a shotgun on him, authorities said.
It is unclear why he had the shotgun or if he fired at the shooter.
“Witnesses reported that the decedent and another unknown male were engaged in a heated verbal dispute outside the location which escalated into gunfire,” Officer Lisa Bender said.
The shooter sped away from the scene in a black sedan.
The shotgun was taken from Miles before emergency response workers could attempt life-saving measures, Bender said.
He was then taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he later died from his injuries, Bender said.
“Homicide responded and interviewed several witnesses,” Bender said.
Anyone with any information on the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477).
