Police said an argument between a woman’s boyfriend and her child’s father erupted into a shooting in the parking lot of a Krispy Kreme.
Atlanta police responded about 3:45 p.m. Sunday to a reported shooting in the 600 block of Evans Street and found Atemus Holliman suffering from gunshot wounds.
Holliman told investigators he and girlfriend Asia Waters were involved in an argument with Tobias Perkins when Perkins shot him twice in the left hip, according to a police report.
Waters and Perkins share a child, police said.
Police said Perkins was in his silver Chrysler 200 when he leaned out the window and yelled at the couple. Waters told police Perkins got out of his car with a black handgun and ran toward Holliman. She then heard gunshots, according to the report.
Perkins ran back to his vehicle and was last seen headed east on York Avenue, police said.
Holliman was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. His condition was not released.
The nature of the argument is not clear, police said.
Perkins has been in and out of the Fulton County jail since 2007 on multiple charges, including violation of the street gang act, weapons violations, simple battery and cruelty to children.
A description of Perkins has not been released.
