Police in Atlanta are looking for a man who allegedly shot several people after an argument near a northwest Atlanta nightclub.
Gunfire erupted about 2:50 a.m. Sunday at a location in the 1000 Block of Brady Avenue, police said. Officers were sent to the location, which is listed as the Compound Nightclub, on a report of multiple people being shot.
Police found two women who had been hurt in the shooting, authorities said. Both were taken to a hospital, where they are stable, police said.
Officers at the scene saw a man who appeared to have been shot, police told Channel 2 Action News. However, he left before speaking with investigators, police said.
Two men later arrived at Emory Hospital with gunshot wounds, Channel 2 reported. Both men said they had been shot in the incident on Brady Avenue.
Investigators said a group of people had been involved in a fight at the nightclub, and one man said he was going to get a gun and left.
Shortly after, the man fired multiple shots toward the location. Investigators told Channel 2 three of the four people who were shot were not involved in the argument.
Police are still trying to determine the circumstances surrounding the shooting. Anyone with information is urged to call Atlanta police.
