5 teenagers shot dead near Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park, police say


Five people between the ages of 15 and 19 were injured but are stable, Atlanta Deputy Police Chief Timothy Peek said at a news conference.

Police were called to an intersection on Centennial Olympic Park Drive in downtown Atlanta to a report of a shot person, Peek said.

When officers arrived around 10 p.m., they found three people with gunshot wounds from “some kind of altercation,” Peek said.

Later, police determined that two other people had gone to a nearby hospital. They are believed to have taken a vehicle at gunpoint from a local valet, Peek said.

There are male and female victims, the deputy chief said, but he did not know the “exact breakdown”.

“The actual motive for the shooting has not been established at this time,” Peek added.

Police recovered three weapons and at least one stolen vehicle, Peek said.
