Atlanta man dead after dispute with UberEATS driver
Atlanta – Investigators are searching for a delivery food driver who they say opened fire and killed a customer just outside metro Atlanta.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victim as 30-year-old Ryan Thornton of Atlanta.
Local media report that according to the Atlanta Police Department, Thornton ordered delivery from UberEATS on Saturday and went outside a Buckhead apartment complex, about 8 miles north of Atlanta, at 11 p.m. to pick up his food.
Investigators say witnesses said that Thornton and the driver exchanged words and then someone inside a white Volkswagen opened fire before it left the complex.
Thornton was taken by ambulance to Grady Memorial Hospital where he later died.
There have been no arrests in the case.
