Atlanta Police are investigating a homicide at the Chevron station at 10th Street and Spring Street in Midtown. Officers say they got reports of shots fired after 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

Officers say an attempted robbery turned into a shootout at the gas station. When an armed gunman tried to rob a driver pumping gas, police said that driver pulled out a gun too.

Gunfire was exchanged between the suspect and the victim. One person was shot and taken to the hospital where they later died.

Police said a car sped off from the gas station right after the shooting happened. After using surveillance video from the gas station, officers have said the suspected getaway vehicle was a black SUV. No tag numbers have been released.

No charges have been filed against the would-be robbery victims.
