A man who was shot at an hamburger stand in southwest Atlanta Friday has died.
So far, no one has been arrested in the shooting and it was unclear what prompted the deadly shooting.
About 2:45 a.m., officers responded to the Checkers restaurant at 2191 Campbellton Road after getting a call about a person shot, according to Atlanta police.
When they arrived they found the man, barely conscious, with a gunshot wound to the mid-section, inside his car, police spokeswoman Officer Kim Jones said.
He was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition, Officer Jones said. A short time later, the man died, she said.
Mr. Newman had apparently placed an order at the drive-through window, and as his food was being prepared, he pulled into a parking spot, according to Channel 2 Action News.
A store employee said that the suspected gunman walked up to the window, pretended that he was about to place an order, then turned and walked away.
Moments later, the employee heard a single gunshot.
No detailed description has been provided on the suspected shooter.
