One person was killed and two others injured in a drive-by that happened Tuesday night in southwest Atlanta. So far, police have no suspect and no motive for the triple shooting.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the deceased victim as Angel Perez-Martinez, 30, Woodstock. Police have not released the names of the man or woman who were injured, but the woman was reportedly in critical condition, they said.

The shooting happened shortly before 9 p.m. outside a lounge called the Dirty Ryderz MC Clubhouse at 837 Lee St., according to Atlanta police. The three people shot were part of a larger group of people in the parking lot of the club, but it was unclear if they were patrons.

Officers responded to the scene after getting a report of three people being shot at the location, police spokeswoman Officer Kim Jones said. When they arrived they found one man dead in the parking lot.

A woman with a gunshot wound to the leg was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital where she remained in critical condition, Officer Jones said. Another man had a grazed wound to the arm and was treated at the scene, she said.

Witnesses told police a dark gray midsize vehicle drove past the location and fired several shots from the vehicle at the victims, Officer Jones said. The vehicle was last seen driving south on Campbellton Road, she said.

It’s unclear if any of the victims were the actual target of the shooting. Police are asking that anyone with information about the shooting or a car speeding from the area to call police or Crime Stoppers.

Investigators remained at the scene for several hours Tuesday.
