Acting Police Chief Darin Schierbaum confirmed an argument led to the shocking incident.
He told WSB-TV: “An argument leads to someone picking up a gun and shooting that gun, leaving someone dead or someone seriously injured.
“We need people to talk about their differences, walk away and not take up arms.
“We can dismantle drug operations which breed violent crime, we can dismantle gang organizations which breed violent crime, we can arrest robbery teams which breed violent crime, we cannot arrest someone who is crazy because there’s too much mayonnaise on his sandwich.”
