Triple shooting in Southwest Atlanta leaves 1 dead

- A card game in Southwest Atlanta turned deadly Saturday night, leaving one person dead and two others hurt.

Atlanta Police tell FOX 5 a group of men were playing cards at a home on the 1200 block of Elizabeth Avenue SW when things got violent.

That's when police say the men pulled out their weapons and began to shoot at each other.

"There were multiple types of rounds and multiple suspects," Atlanta Police Department Lt. Andrea Webster.

Webster said police are still looking for one male who was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and left the game unarmed.

One victim was shot in the arm and another victim was shot in the leg. 

They were both transported to Grady Memorial Hospital where they underwent surgery.

Police are asking anyone who has information on the shooting to call Crime Stoppers.
