Police: Double shooting at Kroger leaves 1 dead, not a random act of violence

Sandy Springs Police Sergeant N. Smith said two people were found shot outside of a vehicle in Kroger's parking lot and one person has died.

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Sandy Spring investigators said that a double shooting at a metro Atlanta grocery store Tuesday evening was not a random act of violence.

Sandy Springs Police Sergeant N. Smith said two people were found shot outside of a vehicle in Kroger's parking lot at Orchard Park Shopping Center at 2090 Dunwoody Club Drive. 

When officers arrived, they found one man shot in the leg and another man shot in his chest or back. Both of the men were taken to a nearby hospital. One was rushed into surgery and is now in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries. The other victim was pronounced dead.

Detectives interviewed a few witnesses and determined that everyone involved in the shooting knew one another. The two victims were at the store together to meet the "perpetrators", according to a Wednesday update from Sandy Spring Police.

Sandy Springs Police said this is an active and fluid investigation. No suspects are in custody at this time. 

Witnesses are asked to call 911 and ask to speak with a Sandy Springs detective. 

"We are going to do our best to find out who was involved," he said.
