ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Police are investigating after a 27-year-old man was shot and killed in northwest Atlanta early Sunday morning. Police confirmed the victim was an off-duty security guard.

The shooting homicide happened at the 2000 block of Main Street around 5:44 a.m. at an event, police said. There were dozens of people at the event, according to police when a “dispute” happened and extended outside.

On Monday, the medical examiner identified the man killed as Lanel Singleton.

“We do have a suspect vehicle. There is a hole in the driverside rear passenger door and the right side passenger door and the door handle is torn off on the rear side passenger of a light Green Nissan Murano,” Atlanta police said.
