Police are trying to determine whether the same gunman is responsible for two overnight crimes in southwest Atlanta.

The first one happened near the West End Mall.

The victims told investigators they got into an argument with a man who then opened fire at the Shell gas station.

Their car was hit two times.

A short time later, two miles away, police believe that same gunman stole a man's cell phone then shot him.

In both cases, the gunman was described as having dreads and was a passenger in a dark vehicle.
