ATLANTA (AP) - One man is dead after a shooting at a Gwinnett County gas station.

Gwinnett County Police are investigating the Tuesday afternoon shooting. Police say the incident began when a man stopped to fix a flat tire at the gas station and was confronted by a man that he knew.

Police said the confrontation escalated to a fight and the man with the flat tire retrieved a firearm from his car and fired a shot. The other man was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center and later pronounced dead.

The police department did not release the name of the victim.
