ATLANTA — Police say two people were driving past the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed on Saturday when a group of men gathered in front of the burned-out restaurant attacked them with rocks and damaged their car.
Ty Spiceland, 35, and a woman who didn’t want to be identified were in their car on University Avenue around 1:30 p.m. Saturday when they were confronted by several people, some of whom were armed with handguns. Spiceland said the group of people punched him three times in the face when he rolled down his window and then threw rocks at the car.
Spiceland reached out to Channel 2 Action News to show us pictures of damage to the car and his injuries.
"It's scary to have someone come after you like that," Spiceland said. "We take their side. We weren't being disrespectful. We were just trying to get on the interstate."
The woman told Channel 2 she was hit and injured with rocks in the arms, legs and face.
Police are now investigating.
On Saturday night, a 35-year-old man was shot outside the same Wendy’s by someone who left the scene in a Grey Dodge Challenger. The man was shot in the leg and taken to the hospital.
Twitter video also captured another shooting outside the burned-out Wendy's on Friday. A woman was shot in the leg during a vigil for Brooks.
Police are still investigating both of those incidents.
