A few miles down the street from Chic, an off-duty security guard was shot multiple times inside RA Sushi on Peachtree Street shortly before 11 p.m., police said. The suspect, who worked at the restaurant, was involved in a dispute with another employee when the victim, who also worked at the restaurant, intervened and was shot, police said.
Atlanta police announced late last year they would be increasing patrols around the city’s nightclubs after a string of shootings. The effort to increase patrols came after five club shootings that left five dead and three injured between August and November 2020.
More recently, a fight April 2 that spilled out of an Atlanta lounge, Bryklyn Kitchen on West Peachtree Place, left a victim injured after a suspect pulled out a gun and began shooting at him.
