Woman wounded in shooting inside southwest Atlanta Kroger

A woman was shot inside a southwest Atlanta Kroger on Thursday after a dispute with another woman and a man, police said.

Officers were dispatched to the grocery store at 590 Cascade Road just before 1 p.m. after receiving calls about a woman who had been shot in the torso, Atlanta police spokesman James White said. 

“At this time it appears two females were in a dispute when a male with one of the females produced a firearm and shot the victim,” he said. “Investigators are working to determine the details surrounding the incident.”

The woman was alert at the scene and taken by ambulance to Grady Memorial Hospital, police said. Channel 2 Action News reported that the woman is 19 years old.

 The investigation is ongoing.
