NORCROSS - Authorities are not releasing the name of a man who died after a shooting outside the Los Recuerdos night club near Norcross on Sunday.
According to Gwinnett County police, preliminary investigations indicate the 29-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were in the rear parking lot of the club on Jimmy Carter Boulevard getting into a vehicle when an unidentified man began firing shots.
The 29-year-old man received multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to a local hospital where he later died.
Gwinnett police spokesman David Schiralli said investigators are saying the 23-year-old woman was an acquaintance of the victim. He said the woman was not harmed.
Police said it is unknown why the man began shooting and investigators are working to determine if there was an altercation inside the club before the shooting occurred.
Authorities are still trying to contact the victim's family before revealing his identity.
Police were unable to provide a description of the male shooter Monday and are asking anyone with information about the incident to call Gwinnett police at 770-513-5300.
