Investigators say it appears the shooting occurred during a dispute between two groups, one of which was part of the victim.
“There were two groups. Two or more on both sides. There was a large exchange of fire. We are still working to determine what led and when they fired and what they fired,” Atalnta police Lt. Germain Dearlove said.
Police called the shooting a “large exchange of fire” in which multiple possible weapons were used. FOX 5 cameras on the scene saw at least 40 casings in the area. A car being driven from the scene had countless bullet holes in its side. Dozens of evidence markers littered the scene, counting every spent shell.
Authorities say another victim has been taken to a local hospital. At this time, they are conscious and the police are preparing to question him to find out what caused the shooting. The identities of any of the victims have been released.
“Currently, at this time, we also have a person shot at the hospital. We’re working to get an interview with him as well to see what led up to the shooting incident that we have now,” Lt. Dearlove said.
