Two men were killed Tuesday night in an exchange of gunfire outside a DeKalb County gas station that also injured two others.

The quadruple shooting was reported at 10:40 p.m. at an Exxon station on Glenwood Road just inside the Perimeter, DeKalb police said. Two people were dead at the scene, and the others were taken to a hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

Investigators believe one of the slain men, identified as 59-year-old Charles Hickman, was the first to fire shots. He is accused of killing Marvin Jackson, 27.

“The male suspect approached the male victim as he stood outside of the business and shot him,” police spokeswoman Michaela Vincent said in a statement. “The suspect also shot at two other men outside the business and they returned fire.”

It was not clear if the two injured men would face charges. Their names were not released.

“Investigators do not believe this to be random,” Vincent said.

The gas station was quiet Wednesday morning after a quadruple shooting the night before.
