ATLANTA — Three people were shot when two vehicles opened fire on one another in northwest Atlanta late Wednesday night, including a 6-year-old, the child’s mother, and a 15-year-old who were caught in the crossfire.
The incident happened at a location on Harwell Rd. near the Westhaven neighborhood just inside the I-285 eastside Perimeter.
Atlanta Police said a 6-year-old child was injured in his knee and is in stable condition, while the 15-year-old was grazed during the shootout and is okay.
The mother and a second adult, a man, were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and the woman's conditions were not known.
It’s not clear what role the man, who was said to possibly be around 30 years old, had in the shootout. Police described the other three victims as having had nothing to do with it.
APD also said there were no suspects yet in custody.
The circumstances behind what led to the shooting are not yet clear.
