A Georgia man was fatally shot after he asked for money at a gas station, police say.

Quinterius Sutton, 26, is charged with murder in the death of 23-year-old Anderson Adonay-Perdomo. He is also charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and misdemeanor driving without a valid license.

Witnesses told police that Adonay-Perdomo was asking people for money at a gas station in Chamblee on March 18 around 12:35 p.m. when he approached Sutton’s car.

“He was shot once in the torso, then Sutton fled the scene from there,” Lt. Mike Winfield of the Chamblee Police Department tells PEOPLE.

Sutton was quickly apprehended after automated license plate readers captured his license plate number, according to Winfield. Adonay-Perdomo was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where he died on Monday.
