An argument inside a northwest Atlanta event venue filled with dozens of people led to a deadly shooting Sunday morning.

Atlanta police received a call about 5:45 a.m. about a person shot outside Ten50 Social Club on Main Street in the Riverside neighborhood. When officers arrived, they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds. He died at the scene, police said.

He was identified as Lanel Singleton, 27, of Fairburn, by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office.

According to Channel 2 Action News, the off-duty security guard got into an argument with a suspect that escalated to gunfire outside the venue. The suspect then drove away in a green Nissan Murano that was described as having bullet holes and damage to its door.

Roughly a dozen police officers responded to the scene, which was roped off with caution tape. The area is located near Spink Collins Park and a few miles from I-285.

An investigation into the shooting is ongoing. Anyone who recognizes the vehicle is asked to contact Atlanta police.
