Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Sophia Choi was on Montreal Court outside of the company, where police found an employee and his boss who were shot.

One of the victims was found near I-285 and Lawrenceville highway nearby.

Investigators say a 38-year-old man and his 22-year-old employee, Cameron Randle, were arguing about money.

During the argument, Randle pulled out a gun and shot his boss. The older man then pulled out a gun and returned fire, striking Randle.


Both men were taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Detectives say once released from the hospital, Randle will be charged with aggravated assault. They determined the 38-year-old man’s actions in returning fire was justified and will not be charging him.
