One of three gunshot victims who drove themselves to a hospital early Friday morning has died, police said.

According to Lt. Mark Lavigne, the homicide commander of the DeKalb County Police Department, a 21-year-old woman drove to DeKalb Medical Center Hillandale, despite having been shot in the leg.

Two male passengers were in the car, both in their 20s. One of the men was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital's trauma center, but he did not survive, Lavigne said.

The other male victim is in critical condition at Atlanta Medical Center, he said.

According to Lavigne, the woman was able to tell detectives what led to the shooting. She said she and the two men were inside the car, which had pulled over near Deshong Road. A man approached the car on foot and started shooting, the woman told police.

Authorities were working with the woman to get a description of the shooter, who got away.
