Gunman opens fire on driver in southwest Atlanta


ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police say a driver was shot to death and his passenger was wounded after a gunman apparently approached their vehicle and fired multiple gunshots at them in southwest Atlanta.

Police said officers found the victims around 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the area of Parsons and Webster Streets, near the Atlanta University Center campus in southwest Atlanta.

The driver, who police say appeared to be in his early to mid-20s, appeared to have been shot multiple times and was dead at the scene. Police say the passenger was shot in the hand and was in stable condition at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Witnesses told police a third occupant might have been wounded and left the scene on foot. Witnesses say the gunman fled the scene in a separate vehicle.
