ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46)- The Atlanta Police Department is investigating a Saturday night shooting that killed a 15-year-old girl and injured three other people.

An APD spokesman said the 10 p.m. shooting happened near a Waffle House on Glenwood Avenue in the Glenwood Plaza shopping center.

CBS46 News has learned two of the wounded victims were in stable condition.

Police said a 15-year-old girl died from her injuries on the scene. An investigator in the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office identified her as Diamond Johnson.

According to APD, the preliminary investigation suggests that before the shooting, several teenagers were fighting. After the fight, other people, including adults, came to the area and the confrontation continued, eventually leading to gunfire, police said.

Police told CBS46 News there was no immediate evidence that the shooting was gang-related. 

Police are still looking for any suspects and released information that they believe there are four cars in connection to the deadly shooting. 

Investigators need the public's help in identifying the four vehicles, if you have any information you are urged to contact CrimeStoppers 404-577-TIPS (8477), or by texting CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637).  

People do not have to give their name or any identifying information to be eligible for the reward of up to $5,000.
