Police were called to an intersection of Centennial Olympic Park Drive in downtown Atlanta in response to a report of someone being shot, Peek said.
When officers arrived around 10 下午, they found three people with gunshot wounds following “some type of altercation,” Peek said.
后来, police determined two more people had taken themselves to a nearby hospital. They are believed to have taken a vehicle at gunpoint from a valet in the area, Peek said.
There are male and female victims, the deputy chief said, but he didn’t know the “exact breakdown.”
“The actual motive for the shooting has not been established at this particular point in time,” Peek added.
Police recovered three weapons and at least one stolen vehicle, Peek said.
