Woman shot in crossfire while leaving club in Atlanta

- Police are looking for a gunman after an innocent bystander was shot in a downtown Atlanta club district, according to Atlanta Police.

Officials said the shooting happened early Monday on Jesse Hill Jr. Drive near a hookah lounge. And they told FOX 5 News a man and a woman, both who had nothing to do with the shooting,  were shot and two cars were damaged in the crossfire. The female victim, Kenisha Fluker, said she was shot in the back while trying to run away from the scene.

Fluker spoke with FOX 5's Marissa Mitchell Tuesday. Fluker said she and her friend were leaving a club when they heard a group of men arguing near a hookah lounge.

"I noticed someone shooting. He opened fire. I freaked out and my friend was like, 'let's just go to the car,'" Fluker told Mitchell. "I turned around running and heard more gunshots like 12 to 15 gunshots....I ran and hit the corner and  I felt myself get hit."

Fluker was treated at Grady Memorial Hospital for her injuries. But she's concerned the situation could've been worse and more people could've gotten hurt.

"Bullets don't have a name. It sure didn't have my name on it but I was hit. I thank God it didn't do more than it did," she said.

Atlanta Police said they have little to go on when it comes to descriptions of a suspect. They said they detained two individuals after the shooting but released them after determining neither was the shooter. If you have any information on the case, call police.
