A man standing outside a College Park café early Monday morning was shot and killed when bullets started flying at a gas station across the street, officials said.

College Park police found the man’s body outside the Legend Café at the corner of Godby Road and Old National Highway, Channel 2 Action News reported. When officers arrived on the scene, they discovered the victim had been struck by “an errant bullet,” according to Maj. Lance Patterson.

His identity was not released.

Police told Channel 2 there some type of argument at the Chevron station across the street. A clerk said he then heard several gunshots before customers rushed into the food mart just after midnight.

A worker at the café had to clean up shattered glass Monday morning after a bullet appeared to pierce the front door.

Authorities have identified a person of interest in the shooting but have not named any suspects.
