Shooting causes scene at Atlanta McDonald's

Posted: Updated:

A man is hospitalized after a shooting in southwest Atlanta early Friday morning that caused a scene in the parking lot of a McDonald's restaurant.

Police are working to find out a motive for the shooting, which happened at about 3 a.m. on Fairburn Road.

According to the overnight commander for the Atlanta Police Department, Capt. Jack Snowden, a woman told detectives that she asked some relatives to drop her off at a friend's house. Some residents came out shooting toward the car, the woman reported. One of the bullets pierced the car and struck a male passenger in the arm.

"Once they started to shoot in the vehicle, one of the projectiles struck the passenger in the arm," said Snowden. "They then took off. The female then ran around to the McDonald's and flagged down a police officer."

The victim is at Grady Memorial Hospital where he is expected to recover. Detectives were attempting to get descriptions of the three shooters.
