The incident happened late Sunday night at the fast-food restaurant on Panola Road, according to DeKalb County Police Department spokeswoman Michaela Vincent. Two men, a 17-year-old and a 21-year-old, got into a verbal argument with a third man before he shot each of them in the leg, Vincent said.

Police responded about 11:30 p.m. and found both men injured at the scene, Vincent said. The two men were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Both are expected to recover.

The suspect has not been identified and the investigation remains ongoing, Vincent said.
