Quan Quoc Lai, 28, died Sunday after he was shot during an altercation in Little Saigon Plaza.

DeKalb County police identified today one of two men killed in a double shooting on Buford Highway on Sunday afternoon as 28-year-old Quan Quoc Lai.

No additional information about Lai was available Monday afternoon, police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said.

Police found two victims along the highway. The first was found in Little Saigon Plaza, 4186 Buford Highway, after police responded to a call of a shooting at 2:46pm. Minutes later, police found the second victim in the parking lot at 5150 Buford Highway.

Both victims were involved in an altercation in Little Saigon Plaza when gunfire erupted, Parish said. There were several witnesses standing nearby. The first victim died shortly after the shooting, and the second died hours later after he was taken to Atlanta Medical Center.

Police are still trying to determine what caused the shooting and which role each victim played. Parish said she did not know which one was Lai.
