Atlanta police have released photos and videos of a man suspected in a deadly shooting at the Ashby MARTA station Sunday evening. Investigators are asking for the public’s help as they work to identify the man.

The incident took place just before 7:30 p.m. at the MARTA station in northwest Atlanta, police said. Two men got involved in a dispute that escalated to the point where one pulled a gun and shot the other, authorities said.

The victim was taken to the hospital but later died, according to police. His identity has not been released.

The shooter did not remain at the scene, but investigators were able to pull photos and videos of the suspect from MARTA surveillance cameras.
