News Nearby: Man Shot, Another Robbed at Stone Mountain Walmart
Saturday morning attack occurred in the shopping center's parking lot, and police are looking for two suspects.
Gwinnett County Police are looking for two suspects who shot a man and robbed another outside a Stone Mountain Walmart around 2:50 a.m Saturday morning.
The suspects, both black males, were armed with a semi-automatic handgun, possibly a .40 calibre Glock, according to a police statement. They approached two separate shoppers in the parking lot, shooting one, a 35-year-old male, in the leg when "he did not understand their demands and continued to walk towards the store," the report said.
The other victim, a 20-year-old-male, handed over his keys, wallet and cell phone. The suspects took his car and left the scene. That vehicle is described as a blue 2010 Honda Fit with Georgia tag PFE8356.
Gwinnett Police reviewed Walmart security footage and found that the assailants arrived in a red Honda Civic that had been taken in a carjacking Friday in Atlanta. It was located at the shopping center and impounded.
The shooting victim was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Gwinnett County Police are asking for anyone with information about this crime to call 770-513-5700.
