A teen was in critical condition Thursday after being shot five times during an argument at a McDonald's in Clayton County.

So far, police have not arrested or identified any suspect and it's unclear what prompted the argument that led to the shooting. But they have identified the victim as 18-year-old Ziquay Willis.

The shooting happened around 11 p.m. Wednesday at the McDonald’s fast food restaurant at 2125 Mt. Zion Pkwy. in Morrow, according to Clayton County police.

Investigators said the incident began with an argument between two groups of people inside the restaurant. The argument was then taken outside where a fight ensued, police spokeswoman Officer Jaquitta Williams said Thursday. It’s unclear how many people were involved in the fight.

At some point, shots were fired and Willis was shot five times, Williams said. She did not say where on the body the teen was shot and it’s unclear if there were more than one shooter. Willis was transported to a local hospital where he was listed in critical, but stable, condition late Thursday afternoon, Williams said.

It’s unclear how many people were involved in the argument and police have not indicated that anyone else was injured in the incident. It’s also unclear how many people were at the restaurant at the time of the shooting.

Crime scene investigators responded to the location to gather evidence. It’s unclear if they were able to interview any witnesses.

The investigation is on-going and investigators are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call the Clayton County police department's tip line at (770) 477-3513.
