Man crashes car after shooting in DeKalb Waffle House parking lot

A man was taken to a hospital in critical condition early Tuesday after he was shot in the parking lot of a Waffle House in DeKalb County and then crashed his car.

Investigators were called to the short-order restaurant at the corner of Wesley Chapel and Snapfinger roads shortly before 1 a.m. They found the victim, whose name was not released, inside his wrecked vehicle a short distance away, according to DeKalb police spokeswoman Michaela Vincent.

The shooter had already left the scene on foot, she said. Investigators believe robbery may have been the motive.

The victim was taken to a hospital, where he remained in critical condition Tuesday afternoon but was listed as stable.
