Crime scene investigators were on the scene well into the morning collecting evidence and logging the scene. Homicide detectives still have not been able to determine what led to the shooting.
"We do know the whole incident took place in the parking lot, there is no indication that the shooting happened inside," Lt. Pete Malecki with the Atlanta Police Department said.
Witnesses told FOX 5 they saw a silver sedan speeding away from the area around the time of the shooting.
Investigators said they are looking for two potential gunmen.
The violence upset one of the owners of Baker’s Black Tie Florist which has been a staple in the area for 35 years.
"It's definitely too close for comfort. Every day it’s getting worse and worse. We already got corona. We got other things going on. I don't understand the violence," Devon Baker said.
"It's definitely a tragedy. This close to the holidays. I just feel for their families," Baker remarked.
Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to contact the Atlanta Police Deaprtment.
