ATLANTA - Police have released several 911 calls from the deadly robbery and shooting at Barcelona Wine Bar

The shooting happened early Sunday morning. 

According to police, three men entered Barcelona Wine Bar on Howell Mill Road in the West Midtown neighborhood as it was closing around 1:45 a.m. Sunday, and tied up the employees with electrical tape.

The men then forced the manager, 29-year-old Chelsea Beller, upstairs to open up the safe. That’s when they shot her. Beller later died at Grady Memorial Hospital. 

One of the callers was an Uber driver who said she was about to pick up a passenger in the location when she saw some commotion.

"I'm an Uber driver and I was about to pick up somebody in a restaurant and two guys got in and started yelling at people to get down. I think they have weapons," the Uber driver said.

Another caller was a security guard in the parking lot who said he saw a man run into the restaurant who seemed like he did not belong inside.

He can be heard as he apparently sees the men run out of the restaurant and across the street.

"I see them going down the street now," the security guard said to the 911 operator.

"Okay, what did they do?" the operator responded.

"It looks like they just robbed the place. They're running across the street now!" the security guard said.

Investigators have released photos and surveillance video in hopes of identifying the gunmen who killed a restaurant manager during a robbery this weekend.
