Kirkwood resident shot while cutting grass

A Kirkwood resident was shot repeatedly late Friday morning by a man who tried to steal his weed wacker.

“The man was just cutting his grass and he gets shot,” said Inell Jones, who lives a few doors down from the victim, Kenneth Hagen.

The shooting occurred in the 2000 block of Ridgedale Road. Hagen was hit three times in the torso area but was able to provide information to officers arriving on the scene, said Atlanta Police spokesman Otis Redmond. His injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Police are looking for a red Kia with a tag that includes the numbers 4247.
