A Point Breeze neighborhood is rocked by violence Monday night after a man was fatally shot multiple times in a store.

The shooting broke out inside a corner store at 20th and Federal streets Monday evening, a little after 6:30, according to authorities.

Employees said they heard two females and the victim involved in an argument before the shooting.
