Dispute over parking space leads to violence

ATLANTA - Police are investigating a shooting and stabbing that they say resulted from an argument over a parking space at a DeKalb County mall.

Police told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a story today that the fight broke out at the Stonecrest Mall in Lithonia late Friday night because a man was upset that another man took his parking space.

They said two men started arguing, and one pulled out a knife and stabbed the other. The man who was stabbed then pulled out a handgun.

But police said the bullet missed the man who stabbed him and hit a woman standing nearby. Officials said none of the injuries were serious and the names of those involved were not immediately released.
