East Point police Tuesday released a photo of the person they said fired shots and injured three people in a restaurant owned by a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member.
Investigators also announced a $2,000 reward for information leading to the suspected shooter, East Point police Capt. Allyn Glover said.
The incident took place on Valentine’s Day inside Old Lady Gang off Camp Creek Parkway, AJC.com previously reported. The three shooting victims, whose names have not been released, all suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect entered the restaurant and targeted another man during the shooting, Glover said. In the process of shooting that man, the suspect also shot two bystanders.
“We are actively looking for a suspect but do not have any further information at this time,” Glover said.
Ricka Franklin, who told Channel 2 Action News her brother works at the restaurant, described a chaotic scene inside the building when gunshots rang out.
“While they were back there cooking and stuff, they just heard gunshots,” she said. “All of a sudden, the customers ran to the back where they were.”
The restaurant is owned by "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kandi Burruss-Tucker and her husband Todd Tucker.
On Saturday night, Burruss-Tucker released a statement about the incident on her Instagram account, which has 7.3 million followers.
“My family and I are truly saddened by the unfortunate events that occurred at Old Lady Gang (OLG) Camp Creek, on the evening of February 14th, an evening that was meant to celebrate love, unfortunately turned into something quite different,” she said in the post that accompanied a photo illustration with the words “God’s got you.”
