ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - A teenager is dead and a young man is in the hospital after a shooting late Monday night, according to Atlanta police.

Police say they responded to a person shot call on the 2500 block of Donald Lee Hollowell Pkwy NW at 11:15 Tuesday night.

“One of those individuals was pronounced deceased on scene, one individual was transported to Grady hospital where he was brought to surgery,” said Lt. Chris Hewitt.

Atlanta News First confirmed with the grandmother that the person killed was her 18-year-old grandson, Dominique McKibbins.

“I’m speaking out because that is my grandson. Somebody loves him. I love him. His mama loves him. We all love him. I’m not giving up,” said Joanne McKibbins.

The police say they believe the other victim is in their 20s and he is at Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition after undergoing surgery.

“What we know is there was some sort of dispute initially and that erupted into gun play,” said Lt. Hewitt.

Police are reviewing security camera footage from nearby businesses to help with the case.
