Altercation leads to shooting at Lawrenceville Kroger

By The Associated Press
LAWRENCEVILLE - Two women were shot Monday inside a suburban Atlanta supermarket that was busy with customers trying to stock up before a winter storm that's widely predicted to hit the area, police said.

Lawrenceville police spokesman Greg Vaughn said the shooting happened at a Kroger and that two people of interest were taken into custody. Vaughn said the shooting came after some sort of fight or argument but didn't have details.

"The scene is a little chaotic," Vaughn said.

"You can probably imagine with everybody stocking up on bread and milk," he said.

Several shoppers told WSB-TV that they hid in freezers while police cleared the store.

Vaughn said the women have been hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. He said one woman was shot in her leg and the other was shot in her torso.

Kroger officials said in a statement that no store employees were injured in the noon shooting, and the store was "evacuated and will reopen at a later date".

Calls from The Associated Press to the Lawrenceville police spokesman weren't immediately returned.
