Police investigate shooting at East Point gas station

Three vehicles were surrounded by crime scene tape.

EAST POINT, Ga. — Three gas pumps were roped off with crime scene tape as police investigated a shooting along Delowe Drive Monday night.

Officers said they were dispatched around 7:40 p.m. to the Texaco gas station after getting a call a person was shot. When they arrived they found a man shot in his vehicle. He was rushed to the hospital. 

Authorities blocked off an area with three vehicles as part of their investigation.

Video from the scene shows one vehicle was a white sedan with damage to the right side of its bumper. A black car had two shattered windows and what appeared to be a bullet hole. Clothes and other items were outside the driver's side door scattered across the floor. A black pick-up truck was also among the vehicles behind police tape.

Police said the victim was at a gas pump when another man approached and shot him. The gunman then got into a black Ford Mustang and drove away, according to investigators.

Detectives are asking anyone with information to call 404-761-2177.
