ATLANTA (AP) – Police say an argument escalated to fatal gunfire at Underground Atlanta, a downtown shopping and entertainment district.

Officer John Chafee, of the Atlanta Police Department, says the shooting was reported Tuesday around 7:20 p.m. Officers were called to Alabama Avenue near Pryor Street and found a male victim who appeared to have been shot at least once in his chest. The man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and was later pronounced dead.

Police say the shooting wasn’t random. Additional information on the argument that led to the shooting and a detailed description of the suspect was not immediately available.

The victim’s identity has not yet been released, and authorities say the victim appeared to be in his early twenties.
