The Atlanta Police Department is currently investigating a shooting that took place Monday night, which left a man injured after he was shot while trying to watch the latest Spider-Man film.
According to CBS 46, police say the incident took place at the AMC theater in Phipps Plaza, around 10:45 pm. A man reportedly shot another man after a dispute began over assigned seating. The shooter ran away following the incident, and the victim was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he is in stable condition, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.
Police are reportedly still searching for the suspect and released a description. They said they are looking for a man wearing a black jacket and a white hoodie. They are also looking for a woman that was with the man.
The suspect and a woman arrived at the theater after the film began, and found someone in their seats. An argument erupted, over the seating and that is when the suspect shot the victim.
Atlanta Police are asking folks to resolve their issues without using firearms after sharing that they have seen an “influx” of people carrying guns while out in public.
