DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - Police are searching for a gunman who shot a man multiple times at a DeKalb County shopping center.
The dangerous situation happened around 10 p.m. Wednesday at Suburban Plaza at the intersection of Church Street and North Decatur Road.
At the scene, officers say they found a 20-year-old man inside a Ross located at the shopping center who had been shot multiple times.
Medics rushed the victim to a nearby hospital. At last report, he is expected to survive his injuries.
FOX 5 cameras saw a trail of blood that stretched from the outside of the store to what appeared to be the women's shoe section.
Davis Hall and his friends were inside the plaza's bowling alley when the bullets started to fly.
"Over the mic, they told us there were some shots fired, and we had to wait around for about 2 hours or so," Hall said. "Then they told us a list of cars that had been hit and one of them was my friend's car."
The gunman hit at least nine vehicles and damaged the doors and windows the Ross, an OB/GYN office, and a dentist's office.
"Right above us, there are bullets 20 feet high. It's like it was a completely random shooting. They don't know what they are doing," Hall said.
The senseless shooting and the damage left behind left Hall shaking his head and wondering why someone would do such a thing.
"I can't imagine a reason someone would do something like this," he said. "It's just stupid. We can all do better."
Police have not released the identity of the victim or any possible suspects in the shooting. At this time, investigators do not believe the shooting was a random act of violence.
