Person shot in Lenox Square parking lot Sunday evening

Atlanta police are investigating a shooting at Lenox Square mall around 7 p.m. Sunday evening which has left at least one person wounded and sent to Grady Hospital.

An Atlanta police report identifies the shooting victim as Christopher Merriweather, who was taken to  the hospital following the 6:51 p.m. shooting outside Macy’s.

The police report says that Merriweather and the suspect got into a fight over a woman he met on Instagram. Merriweather told police that the suspect pulled out a gun and fired several times before Merriweather had a chance to draw his weapon.

The suspect was seen getting into a silver or gray pickup truck driven by a white female and left the scene, the report says. A witness was able to give responding officers the name of the suspect, but police have not yet taken him into custody.
