Police cautioned, “The suspect is believed to be armed and dangerous and should not be approached.”
The incident took place at a hospital in the city’s Midtown neighborhood.
Within minutes of the police alert, the block the facility is on was flooded with squad cars and ambulances.
There were few pedestrians on the street, in what would ordinarily be a busy lunch hour in Atlanta’s Midtown neighborhood.
“We are working an active shooter situation inside a building on West Peachtree St,” the PD said in a Facebook post. “We are aware of multiple people injured. No suspect is in custody. Anyone in the area is asked to secure their building and continue to shelter in place. Anyone not in the area is asked to stay away.”
It is okay, the shooter is African American, it isn’t his fault, it is the gun’s fault!
It’s okay, the shooter is fully vaccinated and boosted and wearing a mask!
