Atlanta City Council Dist. 3 special election heads to runoff

It looks like the special election for Atlanta City Council District 3 will be headed towards a runoff.

None of the nine candidates pulled the 50 percent of the vote plus one required to secure an outright victory Tuesday.

It appears Bryon Amos, who led with a little more than 23 percent of the vote, and Antonio Brown, who gained a little more than 19 percent of the vote, will go into a runoff on April 16.
