Early Morning Shooting on Campbellton Road Leaves 1 Man Dead

Atlanta Police say that the shooting occurred around 3 a.m., Friday morning.

Atlanta Police investigators are continuing to look for a suspect in an early morning shooting at Checkers on Campbellton Road.

According to reports by the AJC, a customer was waiting for his food order while sitting in his car before the gunshot was fired.  An employee of the restaurant told Channel 2 that the suspected gunman then walked up to the counter to order, but turned around and did not order.  Moments later employees in Checkers heard a single gun shot.

At this point, the police department has not released a motive or the names of the victim nor suspect.  APD is reviewing video footage, to see if a suspect can be identified.  The man was rushed to Grady Hospital and was able to give a partial description of the shooter.  The victim later died from his injuries.
