Candler Road shooting

Atlanta, GA (CBS46) Three people were injured after an argument at a Chinese restaurant led to a shooting in the parking lot of another restaurant late Wednesday night.

According to police, the initial argument began after a patron didn't pay for their food at the China Cafeteria on Rainbow Drive. Two employees confronted the individual and the argument then spilled into the parking lot of the Burger King location on Candler Road.

One of the employees retrieved a gun from their vehicle and at some point, shots were fired. 

All three were struck and taken to an area hospital, one of which was in critical condition. 

No word on charges.
