Police: Rideshare driver kills 1 passenger, injures 1 in Atlanta

Investigators said an argument between a rideshare driver and his three passengers lead to a deadly shooting at an Atlanta gas station.

According to Atlanta Police, officers responded to the Chevron on Monroe Drive near Piedmont Circle just before 5 a.m. Wednesday.  

They found two men with gunshot wounds.  

One died at the scene. Paramedics rushed the other man to Atlanta Medical Center in critical, but stable condition.  

The third passenger left before police arrived.  

"At some point there was an argument inside the vehicle with the driver.  That argument ultimately ensued to gunfire," explained Lt. Daniel Genson, the Atlanta Police homicide commander.  

Lt. Genson said it appeared the driver was inside the car when he shot the men outside the vehicle.  He then drove across the street and waited for police.  Investigators have not filed any charges in the case while they try to work out what lead to the gunfire.  

"The rideshare driver is being cooperative with us," Lt. Genson said.  "He's at headquarters and we'll be interviewing him and then following up on video and any other evidence we have from the scene."

Investigators said they collected two guns and multiple shell casings at the gas station.  

"There were two weapons recovered.  We do have [the driver's] and then we're trying to determine if the second weapon was also his or if it belongs to one of the other passengers," said Lt. Genson.

Police have not yet released the names of those involved.
