19-year-old girl shot leaving lounge in downtown Atlanta

ATLANTA — Atlanta police are investigating a shooting at Harlem Nights Ultra Lounge.

According to police, a teen was shot in the 100 block of Courtland Street early Thursday morning.


Channel 2's Audrey Washington learned three people, two men and a woman, are on the run.

Police said it started with an argument inside the lounge around 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

The argument spilled outside as a 19-year-old girl and a man were walking to their car.

The teenager was shot in the leg, according to police.

She was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital and is expected to be OK.

The suspects left in a black pickup truck, which police later found in Midtown.

"They attempted to pull over the vehicle, (and) at that point, the suspects threw a weapon out of the vehicle, a firearm, then they proceeded towards Marietta Street. Units located the vehicle but by that time, the vehicle was unoccupied," Atlanta Police Capt. Reginald Moorman said.
