At least one person has been killed and another wounded when a shooting occurred in downtown Atlanta at the intersection of South Fulton Street and North Georgia Avenue.
Police said they were called to the scene around 5 p.m. and found a person suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.
The victim was transported to the hospital where he later died.
It’s unclear how the shooting happened.
A man who lives nearby told WSB-TV he heard several shots.
“I was walking home and I saw a police officer on top of a police car and I heard two gunshots, and then they all came out, and the guy I was walking with ran out, saying, ‘The police are shooting people,'” said Brandon McManus.
McManus said he’s known the neighborhood for a long time and has never seen anything like it.
He said the police have a reputation for being tough and not letting any of the troublemakers walk in.
The incident was the second shooting in a matter of weeks in the neighborhood.
Police are still investigating.
We’re working on identifying the shooter.
Anyone with information is asked to call Atlanta Police Department at 404-577-2020.
