Atlanta Police are investigating after a person was found dead in northeast Atlanta.

Authorities tell CBS46 the incident occurred in the 600 block of Parkway Drive on Saturday at 9 p.m.

Upon arriving to the scene, police located a deceased man who sustained multiple gunshot wounds.

Investigators say a large group of men were gambling in front of an apartment complex when two of the men got into a verbal argument.

At some point the two men pulled out weapons.

Shortly after the shooting a second victim received treatment at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Authorities say he has refused to cooperate with investigators and may be involved in the shooting.
