ATLANTA — Police say they have located a car involved in the shooting and killing of a  former Georgia State University soccer player Sunday morning.

Ayokunle Lumpkin, 23, was with friends at a home on Milton Avenue in southeast Atlanta when he was shot at around 1:45 a.m., according to Atlanta Police spokeswoman Kim Jones.

Lumpkin was shot once in the chest. He was transported to Grady Hospital where he later died from his injuries, Jones said.

A friend of Lumpkin’s, Tyler Clayburn, was at the party and described what happened.

“A car hit the curb and spun out in the yard hitting someone’s car.  Ayokunle and a couple of others tried to keep the gentleman from leaving. Things got out of hand and I guess the guy panicked. That’s when we heard gunshots,” Clayburn said.

Jones said while a suspect’s car has been found, there is no immediate information about the suspect or an arrest.
