ATLANTA, Ga. -

Police are investigating a deadly shooting in northwest Atlanta Thursday afternoon.

According to police, a man was shot dead in broad daylight while parked at a pump at a gas station.

The shooting happened on the 1900 block of Joseph E. Boone Boulevard.

Authorities confirm the victim is a male in his forties, and he was shot multiple times inside his van. Police say this was likely a targeted killing.

The victim later died at a nearby hospital.

Customers at the gas station say the incident happened around 4:00 p.m. One man says he filmed the dying victim with his cell phone. Witnesses tell FOX 5 the shooter lit up a marijuana blunt after the shots were fired. Atlanta Police would not comment on the existence of the video, and they wouldn't confirm the shooter was using marijuana.

Investigators say they are still interviewing witnesses as they work to find the shooter.
