A man was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later died after he was shot near a Buckhead bar late Saturday night, according to police.

Officers found the victim near Hide Kitchen and Cocktails in the 3100 block of Roswell Road about 10:30 p.m., Atlanta police said in a statement. He was rushed to a hospital with a gunshot wound and later died. The man was not identified by police.

Authorities have not released any information about a suspect.

Just three months ago, Hide was the site of another shooting. After several customers were asked to leave the bar, a man got into a verbal argument with a security guard and began shooting, police said. A woman, who police believe was not the intended target, was struck and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Investigators are still working to determine what led up to Saturday’s shooting, which was one of at least five Atlanta police responded to that day.

Less than 15 minutes prior, officers were sent to the 1400 block of Ryan Street after a man was shot, police said. The man was alert when police arrived at the scene about 10:20 p.m. He was taken to a hospital.

Just before 4 p.m., police were called to the 2300 block of Campbellton Road. Officers at the scene found a man who had been shot multiple times. He was taken to a hospital, but police did not specify his condition.

Earlier on Saturday, a man was killed by a security guard during a fight at the Midtown Diner on Peachtree Street, police said. When police arrived about 4 a.m., they found the man with “at least one gunshot wound,” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Authorities said the security guard remained at the scene and was cooperating with detectives.

“Investigators still aren’t sure how this started between the guy and the security guard,” Atlanta police spokesman Officer Anthony Grant told the AJC.

About 90 minutes earlier, a man was shot repeatedly while leaving a downtown Atlanta pub, police said. When officers arrived in the 200 block of Peachtree Street about 2:30 a.m., they found the man with multiple gunshot wounds. He was rushed to a hospital.

All five shootings remain under investigation.
