East Point, Ga. — A popular restaurant reopened Sunday after a day of love turned into terror when a gunman walked in Saturday.
Police told Channel 2 Action News they are investigating the shooting at Old Lady Gang 2 in East Point.
According to East Point police, on Friday night, a man entered the restaurant on Marketplace Boulevard and shot another man inside.
Police said as the gunman was shooting, two innocent bystanders were also shot.
All three victims are expected to be OK, and police are actively searching for the gunman.
The Old Lady Gang restaurants are owned by singer/songwriter and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker.
On Saturday night, Burruss released a statement on Instagram.
"My family and I are truly saddened by the unfortunate events that occurred at Old Lady Gang (OLG) Camp Creek, on the evening of February 14th, an evening that was meant to celebrate love, unfortunately turned into something quite different. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the individuals that were harmed or in any way negatively impacted.
We are aware that this matter is being actively investigated by law enforcement and we are cooperating with law enforcement to bring to justice those involved.
As African-American business owners, it has been our goal to invest in our community by bringing jobs, quality dining, and a positive experience to the greater Atlanta area; we hope that you know and understand that the acts of violence that occurred yesterday evening do not, in any way, serve as a reflection of OLG or its values.
We appreciate all of the love and prayers that have come our way and we encourage anyone with any information regarding any aspects of the events that occurred to please reach out to law enforcement as soon as possible."
The East Point location opened in 2018, following the success of the original location on Peters Street.
We’re talking to police as they search for the shooter, for updates on Channel 2 Action News.
