A man shot in broad daylight at the busy intersection of Ponce de Leon and Moreland Rd. has been identified. The victim is reportedly 23-year-old Graham Sisk.
Investigators said Sisk was driving a white Mazda when he was gunned down after an altercation with at least two other drivers.
"The traffic light was red so, like, everyone stopped right here and the white car just rolled up to the curb and the black truck just stopped," one witness who was too afraid to be identified by her real name told CBS Atlanta. "The other person just came out and tried to open the door of the white car, but I think it didn't open. That person just came out and he shot the person."
Other witnesses reported seeing two men get out and start shooting inside Sisk's vehicle before speeding away. Sisk died from his injuries.
According to authorities, 10 shell casings were collected at the scene.
"We've got information that the incident may have started several miles down the road," said Atlanta Police Lt. Paul Guerrucci. "Multiple shots fired and that is of concern to us, that's why we don't want to speculate on motive right now."
The intersection of Ponce de Leon and Moreland was blocked to local traffic for hours after the shooting.
Crime Stoppers is reportedly offering up to a $2,000 reward for information in the case.
