ATLANTA - Atlanta police are trying to determine the motive behind a shooting in the parking lot of a special events facility on Piedmont Road that left two people dead.

Atlanta police Maj. Keith Meadows told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the shooting occurred Saturday afternoon in the parking lot where apparently a group of people had planned to meet.

Meadows said at least two dozen shots were fired from at least three weapons. One person died at the scene and another died at an Atlanta hospital. Meadows said another person was seriously injured.

Meadows said investigators will use ballistic evidence to learn more about what happened.

Just as I thought, this is

Just as I thought, this is about to become a trend. Let the dumb butts attack each other in parking lots and shoot it out. Let's set aside certain lots in each city for their killings to take place. Morbid? So is your daughter catching a stray bullet in your front yard! Since there are store closings all over the country, just park a hurst there on weekends. NO ambulance will respond. Pickup is on Monday morning. Keep score, Perform this at 2:00 am to assure good people are home and out of sight. Draw straws to see who is to be in the contest. Everyone else is to evacuate the scene. Cops wont have a need to find them they will find the lot. Goodby dumb BUTTS!
