Riverdale Police have identified the man shot during an attempted robbery of an insurance agency last week and the insurance agent who shot him.

Christopher Evans, 22, of Jonesboro, and another man went into the All Risk Insurance office on Ga. Highway 85 around 5 p.m. Friday and tried to rob 47-year-old Doug Fortaine who was working alone, Riverdale Police spokeswoman Myisha Callaway said.

A struggle ensued in which Fortaine pulled a gun and shot Evans who later died. The other man ran from the scene and has not yet been found.

Fortaine, who lives in an apartment behind the office, is not facing charges in the case.
