RIVERDALE, Ga. - Two people are in the hospital after police say someone shot them near a graduation party in Riverdale early Saturday morning.

A Channel 2 Action News crew found a crowd of people hugging and yelling after the shooting on Webb Road near Highway 85.

Clayton County police said two males wandered to the nearby Sutter Lake apartments after a large graduation party wound down.

"They encountered some females and began a conversation according to witnesses account. During that conversation, the driver of the vehicle noticed a male subject brandishing a weapon approaching the vehicle," said Clayton County police officer Clarence Cox.
