RSS

Three people, including a mall security guard were shot in a botched attempt to rob a jewelery store at the Greenbriar Mall in Atlanta.

According to witnesses, four or five men attempted the robbery, but were chased off by mall security and local police.

Atlanta police Officer James Polite said four or five men attempted to rob Glitz Jewelers, but released few details about the stickup or why gunfire erupted.

The suspects headed west on Lakewood Freeway in a gray and black Ford Expedition, Coleman said.

Janie Shoneye, the store manager of Ashley Stewart women's clothing store, said she heard two shots shortly after 5 p.m.

From inside Ashley Stewart, she said, she could see two men wearing ski masks and bandanas run out of the mall and get into a dark vehicle.

She saw police and mall security run after the men.

According to the latest reports, the conditions of the three wounded victims is improving and police are still searching for the suspects.
