Police said when officers arrived, they found four female students, ages 17 through 19, with injuries. They were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and are listed as stable.
According to reports, the gunfire was triggered by a confrontation.
“It appears there were two separate groups that were targeting each other and the students in the crossfire,” said Atlanta Police Capt. William Rucker.
One Clark Atlanta University freshman told the station that she had second thoughts of hanging out before the first day classes.
“I was telling my roommates, I was like, ‘Ya’ll, its class tomorrow let’s stay in.’ Thank God I was taking forever to get dressed right after it happened,” said freshman Samone Wright.
One girl was shot in the chest, another in the leg and bullets grazed two other girls.
There is a security camera in the area that may have recorded the shooting.
