COBB COUNTY, Ga. - Cobb County Police are trying to unravel details of a bizarre series of events which included a woman who was been shot stopping for help at a Starbucks. But the woman did not stay, police said, instead, she left the coffee house in a hurry and ended up in Atlanta.

"The lady stormed through the doors and she was screaming ‘Call 911, call 911! I've been shot!’" said customer Brice Moore.
Before anyone could help the woman or find out who had shot her, she left the restaurant and drove away.

Police said the woman was shot outside the Starbucks and investigators are trying to determine the circumstances which led to the shooting.
Moore said he and others were concerned for their safety.
"I was looking around at a shooter following her. I wasn't even concerned about her safety it kind of fell between the safety of all of us that were there," said Moore.
