Man killed near Georgia State University Dorm in shooting incident

"Upon arrival, officers located a male who sustained several apparent gunshot wounds."


On Sunday, a man was shot and killed outside a Georgia State University dorm in downtown Atlanta.

According to the Atlanta Police Department, they responded to a call around 1:40 PM that a person had been shot at 120 Piedmont Avenue NE.

Police said that they believe the shooting happened at the RaceTrac gas station nearby. "Upon arrival, officers located a male who sustained several apparent gunshot wounds," police said.

"The male was not alert, conscious, or breathing and was pronounced deceased on scene," they added.

According to Atlanta News First, the gas station is connected to The Mix apartment complex, which they advertise as student housing, but non-students are allowed to live there. It is across the street from the University Commons dorm.

Police have not released a motive or any information on a suspect, nor have they released the identity of the victim.

The RaceTrac gas station was the site of a shooting last October that left 3 people injured and one woman dead after a fight broke out. None of the victims were involved in the shooting, according to WSB-TV.

According to APD data, the total crime rate in Atlanta is up 15 percent at this time last year. The attacks on a person are down 12 percent from this time last year. However, the homicide rate is up 33 percent, with 16 so far this year compared to 12 this time last year.

In 2023 violent crime in Atlanta went down by 17 percent in 2023 compared to 2022, while property crime went up by 7 percent. Total crime was up 3 percent in the city for 2023.
