A dispute over a parking space outside a southwest Atlanta gas station ended in gunfire Wednesday night, police said.

The victim and the shooters, who were traveling in a white Dodge Ram, both arrived at the Texaco station on the corner of Campbellton and Fairburn roads about 11:30 p.m., according to Atlanta police. They reportedly argued as they maneuvered into adjacent parking spots.

“The suspects and victim argued about moving out of the other’s way and a passenger got out of the Dodge and began shooting at (the victim),” Atlanta police spokesman Officer Steve Avery said.

The driver of the Dodge also shot at the 33-year-old victim, Avery said in a statement. He was found with multiple gunshot wounds to his leg when officers responded to the gas station.

The victim was taken to a hospital, where he was stable Thursday, according to police.

Investigators are searching for the suspects in the pickup truck, who have not been identified. Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
