2 people killed in shootings outside northwest Atlanta Burger King

Channel 2's Darryn Moore talked to investigators at the scene about the investigation.

Two officers were injured investigating fatal shootings outside a northwest Atlanta Burger King, police said Monday.

Just after midnight, officers found a car riddled with bullets in the 3100 block of Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway, Atlanta police spokeswoman Officer Kim Jones said. One person was found dead in a vehicle outside the Burger King. Another person was found next door in the parking lot of the Petro gas station. He died on the way to Grady Memorial Hospital.

The victims were identified as Quincy White, 22, of Atlanta, and Reginald Coicou, 24, of Fayetteville, according to Channel 2 Action News.

“While responding to the call, units spotted a [man] running on the ramp to I-285 northbound,” Jones said. “It appears that he may have been running from the scene of the shooting. The [man] was seen throwing an object into the wood line at I-285.”

Police searching the wood line were unable to locate the object, believed to be a weapon, and became involved in a struggle with the man.

“During the struggle, Officer [Joseph] Daniels’ vehicle slowly rolled forward and bumped him, and rolled over the legs of Sgt. [Lakea] Gaither, Officer [Travis] Williams, and the [man],” Jones said.

Daniels was checked and refused treatment.

Gaither, Williams and the man were taken to Grady. The man complained of a foot injury and dizziness, Jones said.

Officers found marijuana on him, police said. Drugs were also found at the scenes of the shootings.

Police said they have surveillance video from the Burger King of a car possibly driven by the shooter, according to Channel 2.
