Police investigating shootout near Atlanta nightclub

ATLANTA — Atlanta police are investigating a shooting near a nightclub in Atlanta.

Channel 2's Audrey Washington was at the scene near Club Crucial on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway where there was a heavy police presence Tuesday morning.

Police told Washington two parties were shooting at each other along Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway Tuesday morning.


Atlanta Police Capt. Andrew Senzer said it does not appear the apparent shootout was at all related to Club Crucial.

Washington saw a red Dodge Challenger riddled with bullets holes at the scene.

Atlanta police said the driver of the car was shot in the backside, rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital and expected to be OK.

Police said they are looking for the other person or persons involved.

They said they believe they were driving a white minivan.

“At this point, we just have one victim, and two different types of shell casings on the street,” Senzer said. “This could’ve been a lot worse.”

Police found a weapon at the scene, and they said they still have to see if it is connected to the shootout.

Triple Team Traffic reports the police activity closed Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway, east of H.E. Holmes Drive.
