A few words exchanged in a crowded bar and caught on video could be key to Atlanta police finding Alec Price’s alleged shooter.

Price, 25, of Decatur, was found with multiple gunshot wounds outside Mother Bar & Restaurant about 11:50 p.m. Tuesday, Atlanta police said. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he died.

“The preliminary investigation indicates the victim may have been involved in some type of argument prior to the shooting,” Atlanta police Sgt. John Chafee said in an emailed statement.

Atlanta police are hoping a video of moments before the deadly shooting leads them to four witnesses last seen with Price.
