ATLANTA — A woman is dead after police say another woman shot her multiple times outside a busy club.
Police tell Channel 2 Action News the two women, who were in a relationship, were in a car together outside Magic City and got into an argument.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office identified the victim as 43-year-old Therese Bradley Horton and the shooter as Candace Morgan.
Police say Morgan fired her first shot at Horton from inside the car. Horton then got out of the car and ran to the club's parking lot for help, according to police.

Morgan continued to shoot at her as she ran. Horton died at the scene.
"We do believe the victim was shot three times or at least we know she was shot at three times and struck one time," Atlanta police Lt. Andrea Webster said.
Horton found shot in the back and arm in the Magic City parking lot.
"The suspect was still on scene. Everything happened so quickly that the security guards were able to assist us in detaining a shooter," Webster said.
Despite multiple shots going off, police said no one else was hurt. Morgan is currently in the Fulton County Jail facing murder charges.
