Arrest made in quadruple shooting in downtown Atlanta
News


ATLANTA -- Atlanta police have made an arrest in a shooting that injured four people in downtown Atlanta.

The shooting happened late Wednesday night outside of J.R. Crickets on Poplar and Forsyth Streets, close to Georgia State University.

Authorities say an argument inside the restaurant spilled out into the streets, where shots were fired.

All of the injured parties were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police recovered three guns, including one discovered by an 11Alive crew after police left the scene after a parked car moved.

"Sometimes the scene is bigger than what we initially get here and discover, so somehow during the course of taping off the scene, they did not tape the scene as far as they probably should have taken it,” said Atlanta Police Sgt. Warren Pickard.

One man, Brent Morrie, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.

By Thursday afternoon, a broken window had been replaced and business had resumed at the restaurant.

An optometry practice next door was closed for most of the day as they awaited new windows.

Other who live and work down nearby said they still feel safe.
