Police are combing a northwest Atlanta neighborhood for clues about why someone shot a man twice with an automatic weapon. Atlanta police said they're looking into any possible connection between this shooting and another incident that happened a couple of miles away early Sunday. Police said a 27-year-old was shot twice, once in the hand and once in the side, at about 2:30 a.m. on Harwell Road. Police said the victim is in a hospital in stable condition. "There were a group of males chasing another group of males. Witnesses indicated what sounds to be automatic weapons fire," Atlanta Police Maj. C.J. Davis told Channel 2's Sophia Choi. Investigators used K-9s to find bullet casings, and police said this shooting may be connected to an incident that happened at about 12:30 a.m., at Ira Street, about three miles away. That's where police found several shell casings, but no shooting victim. Investigators said they're looking into how or if these two cases are linked, but so far, they have not made any sort of definite connection. Police said they have no suspects in custody at this time.
A Channel 2 Action News investigation found that in Georgia, people who have a temporary protective order against them can still keep their weapons.
