Police were called to the area of Barnett Street and Ponce de Leon Avenue just after 2 a.m. Thursday. Officers found a man dead inside a car outside the restaurant; he had been shot in the chest.
 
A witness told WSB TV the shooting suspect had robbed the victim and another man before the shooting, and then fled.

Atlanta Police Capt. Paul Guerrucci told WXIA TV the unidentified victim in his mid-20s was shot at least once in the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police believe the man collapsed inside a gray Chevrolet Impala after being shot.

Investigators have not yet determined a motive or made any arrests in this case.
 
No description of the suspect has been released.

and all of this is due to the alley way behind the restaurant-Maiden Lane-being a known haven for druggies, hookers and generally uptonogood types because of the nightclub MJQ on the corner of Ponce and Ponce Place. Every Thur-Mon that alleyway is the adopted parking lot for MJQ partiers. At closing time the entire alley fills up with drunk drivers, fights, drug users, etc... and the local thief's just line up out there waiting for the unattended drunks to walk to their cars. The city fails to keep it mowed or lighted and it is a perfect place to get killed.
