SOUTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. —

Hapeville police are looking for the men who shot and killed a 22-year-old Saturday night and injured another.

The victim is identified as Terence Bluett, of Atlanta.

Hapeville police detectives combed an apartment complex off King Arnold Street looking for evidence. They say they found two shell casings and talked with witnesses who reported hearing about four gunshots at about 8:30 p.m. at the Clarion Court Apartments.

Police think two men were shot and tried to drive to safety.  Less than a mile away at the corner of College and Union streets, police say Bluett's car was found. One man was able to get out before collapsing; the other was found inside the car.

Detectives say both men were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where Bluett died. Investigators say the victims lived in the area where their car was found.

Channel 2’s Liz Artz spotted what appeared to be a bullet hole on the driver's side of the car. This is the fourth homicide so far this year for Hapeville. Police Detective Stephen Cushing says that's a lot for the small city. They do not think the murders are connected.

Police think the suspects and victims knew each other. They say they have several leads they are working now.
