MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Marietta police say they’re investigating the shooting death of a man who was gunned down as he ran from a car.

Police said in a statement that the slaying occurred around 2:30 p.m. Sunday in the city just northwest of Atlanta.

When officers arrived at an address on Griggs Street, they found 24-year-old Arthur Moses Jr. of Marietta dead, with multiple gunshot wounds.

Police say Moses and a woman were sitting in a car when the suspect pulled a pistol and began firing into the vehicle. Police say Moses and the woman tried to get away on foot, but Moses was killed before he could escape.

Police say a suspect was apprehended and taken to the Cobb County Jail, where he was being held without bond.
