7 injured in SW Atlanta drive-by shooting 

Seven people were injured Friday in a late night drive-by shooting in a southwest Atlanta neighborhood, authorities said. 

A group of people were standing outside when two cars drove by and opened fire at Bass and Ira streets about 11:15 p.m., Atlanta police spokesman James White said. 

Seven people were struck or grazed and one man is in critical condition after being shot in the stomach, police said.

One of the vehicles was a black SUV and the other was a black sedan, White said. The victims were taken to several hospitals across the city. 

No arrests have been made and anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Atlanta police. 

On Thursday morning, a drive-by shooting in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood left two women and five men injured, authorities said.
