Man shot dead at Gainesville drugstore

This story is still developing.

GAINESVILLE, Ga. — A man is dead after a shooting at a drugstore in Gainesville late Thursday night.

Gainesville police said the victim was shot while at the CVS on Parkhill Drive and was taken from the scene to a Northeast Georgia Medical Center. That victim, however, has since died from his injuries - all while the shooter is still on the run. 

K9 units are now in the area looking for the person responsible - reportedly a black man wearing all black clothing. Investigators have also called out a police helicopter to aid in their search.

Police haven't provided any details on the suspect or the victim but they're asking anyone with information about the shooting to call 911.
