According to Dearlove, the victims, as well as the evacuees, were minors and were removed for what he called “rebellious behavior” along with violations of the curfew for minors that has been in force in the town since 3:00 p.m. local time.
Police believe the victims were between the ages of 15 and 21. Once the group was escorted off the property, a dispute occurred near Atlantic Station, prompting the shooting, Dearlove said. The reason for the dispute is currently under investigation.
Atlantic Station is a major commercial and recreational area in downtown Atlanta, and the neighborhood, like the rest of the United States, has seen periodic incidents of gun violence.
Police are seeking to identify the parties involved, as preliminary information suggests this dispute was between two groups, with two possible shooters, Dearlove said.
