Gunshots rang out just after 7:30 p.m. Friday in the 4700 block of Curly Oaks, near Hiram Clarke Road and W. Fuqua Street.
When officers arrived, a man was found dead from a gunshot wound. His name has not been released.
A witness we spoke to said he heard the gunshots, which not only scared him but startled his dogs.
The cries of a distraught family member could be heard as police interviewed witnesses.
A dozen evidence markers were seen on the ground as investigators combed the scene for clues that could lead them to the man's killers.
Police did not give us a license plate to the suspects' vehicle.
