FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- (WGCL) -- A 30-year-old man has died after being shot several times following a dispute with an Uber Eats driver on Saturday in Buckhead.

Authorities say the shooting happened outside a condo building on Pharr Court at about 11:30 p.m.

Witnesses told police the customer had placed a food delivery order using the Uber Eats app. He went down to meet the driver, received his order and began to walk away. That's when words were exchanged between the delivery driver and the customer, police said.

Shots were apparently fired from the delivery vehicle, police said, striking the customer. The driver fled the scene in a white Volkswagen, police said. The customer later died from his injuries. Authorities identified him as Ryan Thornton, 30, of Atlanta.
