A 44-year-old man was killed Wednesday in a shooting outside a College Park discount strip mall.

Officers arriving at the Old National Village Discount Mall about 5:20 p.m. found the man lying on a walkway, College Park police Chief Ferman Williford told AJC.com. He appeared to have been shot multiple times to his torso.

The victim, identified by police as Xavier Turner, later died at a hospital.

Another gunshot victim, Treveon Milan, left the scene after the shooting but returned to be treated by medics, Williford said. Milan was hit in the face and refused to be taken to a hospital.

“We have not established a clear motive at this time nor have we identified suspects,” Williford said in an email. “The investigation is ongoing.”

The discount mall is located off Godby Road and Old National Highway and houses several small businesses and salons.
