The incident happened at a Popeyes restaurant on Panola Road Monday around 9 p.m.

DeKalb police told Channel 2 Action News three people were shot and were all initially listed in critical condition. Police confirmed around 11:30 p.m. that one person died.

Detectives recovered at least three guns they found on the ground.


Whoever pulled the trigger, riddled a truck with bullets and shot out the back window.
