A 22-year-old man was shot at least three times early Monday morning while heading to his car outside a Roswell Road bar in Sandy Springs. And police said the suspect and the victim had gotten into a fight earlier.
Officers found the victim, Mr. Rodriguez Price of Union City, after getting a call about a person shot in the parking lot of the bar, police spokesman Capt. Steve Rose said.
According to witnesses, Mr. Price and the suspect had gotten into an altercation inside the club, Capt. Rose said.
“The two engaged in a fight until it was broken up,” Capt. Rose said. “Later, outside the club, the two re-engaged in an altercation but were split up.
“Price was walking to his car when the suspect came upon him and fired several times, hitting Price three times with .40 caliber rounds.”
Mr. Price was taken to North Fulton Hospital where he was listed in stable condition, Capt. Rose said.
A lookout was posted for the suspect who fled south on Roswell Road towards I-285 in a black sedan. But police could not provide a detailed description of the suspect.
