One person was shot multiple times and another man ran over and killed Wednesday night at a shopping plaza in DeKalb County.
So far, the DeKalb County Medical Examiner’s Office has not identified the victim who was killed. And police are trying to determine if he was an innocent bystander or if he was involved in the shooting.
“When officers arrived they found one victim pinned under a vehicle and he was deceased,” police spokesman Capt. Steven Fore said. “They found another victim at the Walgreen with gunshot wounds to the upper torso.”
Witnesses told police that the man was shot by another man who fled the scene before officers arrived, Capt. Fore said.
“The person who was shot had attempted to drive off when he hit the guy who was deceased and pinned him under the car,” Capt. Fore said. “The car continued moving for some period with him under it, dragging him.”
The shooting victim then got out of the car at the Walgreen, he said.
Because of the condition of the body, police could not tell if the man was also shot before being struck.
The shooting victim was in serious condition at Grady Memorial Hospital, Capt. Fore said.
So far, police have no description of the suspect who fled or a motive for the shooting.
