Police found Castillo in the driver's seat of his car, stopped in the right lane of traffic.

“There were multiple shots fired inside the vehicle. We were able to recover a number of shell casings," said Atlanta police Lt. Andrea Webster.

Lanes were shut down for several hours as police investigated the scene. They have since reopened.

Investigators hope DOT cameras recorded what happened, since they have no motive or a description of the shooter.

“We're canvassing the area for those and trying to find any footage that might help us,” Webster said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS.
