6 injured in 3 overnight drive-by shootings in Atlanta

Three people, including a 10-year-old boy, were injured early Saturday during a drive-by shooting at a northwest Atlanta apartment complex, authorities said. 

It was the first of at least three drive-by three shootings Atlanta police investigated overnight, none of which were fatal. 

Officers responded to the Rolling Bends Apartments on Center Street about 1:20 a.m., Atlanta police said in a statement. They arrived to find three people with gunshot wounds. 

A 38-year-old woman told officers she was sitting outside with friends when a white Toyota and a Silver Nissan drove into the complex and began shooting at buildings, damaging at least eight units. A 20-year-old woman and a 10-year-old boy were also struck, police said.

About 40 minutes later, officers were called to the 880 block of Crew Street in southwest Atlanta after a 63-year-old woman said she was shot in the wrist while sleeping on the sidewalk. The woman told officers she was lying down when a black pickup truck pulled alongside her and fired a single shot. She was taken to the hospital and is expected to be OK. 

Two more men were injured just before 3:30 a.m. during a drive-by outside a northwest Atlanta nightclub. A 34-year-old told police he was in the parking lot of the Revel Lounge on Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard when shots were fired from a nearby car. 

The man told officers he believed the shooting was the result of an earlier dispute inside the club, and that he was not the intended target. Officers later learned a second man was injured in the shooting and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, police said Saturday. That victim, a 38-year-old, was in surgery and unable to speak with detectives.

No arrests have been made, and all three shootings are still being investigated.
