Manual walked out of the home after the verbal altercation and was shot, according to authorities.

Officers responded just after midnight on Sunday to the home for a call of a person shot and found Manual in the driveway with a gunshot wound, police said.

As officers provided first aid, police said Manual was able to tell them who shot him before being rushed to a hospital, where he died.

Jaswan Burroughs, a convicted felon, was arrested Sunday in connection to the murder in Riverdale, Georgia, police said.
