Four men were shot at Fletcher's Place in Decatur late Friday night.

One of the four men shot at a DeKalb County restaurant late Friday night has died from his wounds, police confirmed Saturday afternoon.

Now investigators are searching for the shooters responsible.

“We do not have a suspect in custody, but are following up on several promising leads,” DeKalb police Lt. Shane Smith said in a statement.

The shooting happened at Fletcher’s Place, a restaurant in the Gallery at South DeKalb shopping mall, police said. Officers responded to the eatery in the 2800 block of Candler Place shortly around 11:20 p.m. and found four men in their 20s and 30s who had been shot.

Police identified the victims Saturday as 37-year-old Damon Davis; Octavious Maddox, 38; Daletavios McGuire, 48; and 27-year-old Draviounte Towns.

Smith said a dispute over a woman escalated into gunfire. Investigators told Channel 2 Action News a customer got into an argument with an employee or another patron and began shooting.

There are indications that the shooting may have spilled outside as several cars in the parking lot were riddled with bullet holes, Channel 2 reported. Fletcher’s remained closed Saturday morning, according to the news station.

Police at the scene initially said three people were shot Friday night. But Smith confirmed the fourth victim in a statement Saturday afternoon.

The four men were taken to hospitals with serious to critical injuries Friday night, police said. McGuire died there Saturday morning.
