The man was seen going in and out of the Chevron on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway multiple times before he was approached by two men in a black Jaguar and shot in the stomach about 4:40 a.m. Tuesday, Atlanta police Capt. Clif Johnson said.

“The victim ran across the street to the Checkers parking lot where he collapsed with a gunshot wound to the stomach,” Johnson said.
