The 28-year-old man who was shot to death in College Park Friday afternoon may have died because of an argument over a bicycle, police said Saturday.
“It is a sad thing that something like this takes place over a piece of metal,” Officer Wayne Hood told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
David Myers, of Decatur, was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
