A man was killed and a suspect was injured in a shootout inside a DeKalb County restaurant Monday morning, authorities said.
DeKalb police were called just before 4 a.m. to the Daallo Restaurant and Lounge in the 5000 block of Memorial Drive near Stone Mountain, according to spokesperson Sgt. B. Danner. When officers arrived, they found a man dead at the scene. The victim was identified as 24-year-old Ihasan Russell by the DeKalb County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Russell was approached at the restaurant by three suspects and shots were fired between them, police said. The suspects then fled the scene.
Soon after, one of the suspects was found shot at 15 Chatfield Drive, about three miles from the restaurant, police said. They were taken to a hospital and are expected to survive, police said, without elaborating on possible charges.
Authorities did not provide descriptions for the other two suspects, who remain at large.
Danner believed the restaurant, which typically closes at 4 a.m., was open to the public when the shooting occurred.
An investigation is ongoing.
