I-20 shooting leaves at least one person injured

Posted: Updated:

Atlanta police are investigating a shooting which occurred on I-20 near Hamilton E. Homes Drive.

"I'm glad they told me no one is dead because I thought somebody was dead," said Destiny Clark, a neighbor.

Police said a Marta officer heard gunshots near H.E. Holmes.

Investigators said the Marta officer later saw several men running from a burning car which had been crashed.

The Marta officer told police those men then jumped into a red vehicle.

Officers said they later found an AK-47 in the crashed car and another AK-47 just outside the car.

The owner of the crashed car later called police and said a man carjacked him at a stop sign at Collier and Hightower.

Officers said they then received a call from Grady Hospital claiming a man showed up there with a gunshot wound to the chest, but do not know whether the man shot is connected to the interstate shooting.

If you have information which could assist investigators, you are asked to call Atlanta Police Department at (404) 577-TIPS.
