WE HAVE NEW DETAILS on the shooting in a BOTCHED robbery attempt at Lenox Mall in Atlanta, Georgia!
For the second time in a week, gunfire erupted at a metro Atlanta mall filled with holiday shoppers.
The attempted robbery occurred about 12:15 p.m. when the employee was approached by two men as she walked to her car on the first floor of the garage, Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos said.
She was conscious when she was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive her injuries, but police are still trying to track down the suspects.
“This robbery attempt in broad daylight, at the height of the holiday shopping season when APD and the mall have increased security at and around (Lenox Square), is an appalling and brazen criminal act that will be dealt with swiftly,” Campos said.The two men fled the parking garage on foot following the botched carjacking, police said. Investigators are analyzing the mall’s security footage in an attempt to identify them. Last Saturday, holiday shoppers in Cobb County scrambled for cover as shots rang out in the Cumberland Mall food court.
