5 people injured in northwest Atlanta shooting Monday

A preliminary investigation into a Monday night shooting that wounded five people in northwest Atlanta suggests at least three different weapons were fired.

According to a report from Atlanta police, four men were wounded and one woman was grazed by a bullet during the shooting. Antonio Allen, Jaquan Pelts and Jatavious Alexander were all shot in the legs. Martavis Cooper was shot in his legs, stomach and hip, according to police. All of the men were transported to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition.

Cusona Kendrick was in her apartment when a bullet grazed her in the back, police said. She refused treatment and remained on the scene.

The male victims told police they were standing near the entrance of an apartment complex in the 1100 block of Joseph E. Boone Boulevard about 10 p.m. when shots rang out from the other side of the street. Police found nearly 30 shell casings in an alley across the street from where four of the victims were standing prior to the shooting.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
