Man Dies After Being Shot On Ga. Interstate

ATLANTA (AP) — Police say a man has died after being fatally shot on a Georgia interstate.

Authorities say the unidentified man was shot Thursday evening inside a car on Interstate 20. Police say a black Maybach with Florida plates was on the right shoulder of the highway with bullet holes in the driver’s side window. DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Mekka Parish says witnesses told investigators shots were fired at the luxury sedan from a white SUV that fled the scene.

The wounded man was critically wounded and was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Multiple lanes were blocked early Thursday evening and began reopening around 6 p.m.

Authorities are unsure of the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
