Man fatally shot near Atlanta hospital

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Police say a man who was shot near a hospital in downtown Atlanta has died.

Authorities say the man was fatally shot Thursday afternoon near Grady Memorial Hospital. His identity hasn't been released.

Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee says the man appears to have been in his mid-30s and suffered at least two gunshot wounds.

Chafee says the shooting may have stemmed from an argument that escalated, and police believe the victim and suspect knew each other.

A detailed description of the suspect wasn't immediately available.
