ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police were trying to find witnesses who saw a man gunned down amid a crowd of people in the courtyard of an apartment complex.

Police Capt. Paul Guerrucci tells CBS Atlanta that witnesses might be reluctant to come forward after the shooting late Monday night at the apartments on the city’s southwest side.

Investigators tell WSB-TV that the victim was among several people standing in a crowd when the gunman bypassed everyone else and shot him. Witnesses said the crowd of people had been talking and drinking for much of the evening near a gazebo in the courtyard.

Detectives say they think several the victim’s friends witnessed the shooting, but did not stay around to tell police what they saw.
