Atlanta police say a former Georgia State University and Sprayberry High School soccer player was fatally shot early Sunday morning in Southeast Atlanta.
The news outlet reported that the incident occurred after Lumpkin followed a vehicle that had hit his girlfriend’s car during an incident in the Chosewood Park area.
The shooting occurred at approximately 1:44 a.m. with Lumpkin suffering a gunshot wound to the chest. He was transported to Grady Hospital and later was pronounced dead.
Witnesses were able to provide a vehicle description to the police, who are searching for a green vehicle that sped away from the shooting scene.
Lumpkin was reportedly still attending GSU, where in four seasons he scored 10 goals and three assists in 70 career matches for the Panthers.
The former Northeast Cobb soccer standout is the second former GSU men's soccer player killed this summer. In June, 21-year-old Timothy Nixon died during a one-car accident in downtown when he lost control of his car and hit an ice cream store.
