ATLANTA - Atlanta police say two people were killed in a gunfight, including a 16-year-old bystander who was trying to run away to avoid trouble.

Atlanta Police Maj. Keith Meadows says the gun battle broke out Monday night in southwest Atlanta.

Meadows says the 16-year-old was walking through a vacant lot when he saw there was a problem and tried to flee.

Meadows says a 33-year-old man who was also killed was apparently the intended target of the suspect, who is still at large.

The names of those killed have not been released

A 16 year old should know better than to walk through a vacant lot in south Atlanta at night.

Wow Baron. A child is dead

Wow Baron. A child is dead and all you can do is wag your finger and say "He should have known better". I can only hope that people show as much sympathy should such a tragedy happen to you.
