ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Atlanta police are trying to figure out who is responsible for a shooting that sent people running in all directions Monday.

It happened shortly before noon near Joseph E Lowery Blvd and Joseph Boone Blvd.

Investigators said a Georgia State trooper stopped at a shopping center when he heard gunfire.

Police said the scene was chaotic.

The trooper called for backup and more than a dozen officers responded.

Detectives found several bullet casings and a gun at the scene.

"At least two people have an altercation and were engaged in gunfire with each other. No officers were involved, but we are not sure if anyone was struck or not because no one presented themselves to a hospital or to us needing treatment," said Sgt Greg Lyon.

Investigators are hoping witnesses will provide descriptions of the shooters.
