CONYERS — Four Conyers residents escaped injury early Sunday morning when the SUV they were in was shot three or four times by a man who was shooting from his car.
Conyers Police were called to an address on Hunting Creek Lane at about 4 a.m. Sunday. The 27-year-old driver of a Ford Explorer told officers that he had stopped at a house on the street to drop off one of his three passengers when the shots were fired. He said he saw a man in a blue or gray Chevrolet Impala drive past with the man leaning over to shoot out of the passenger window.
The victim told police that he and his passengers had been to Scores Sports Bar on Wesley Chapel Road earlier in the evening where he had a confrontation with about 20 male patrons of the bar who came up to him and started to show gang signs. The victim said security personnel threw out the men who started the confrontation.
The victim said he and his three friends waited about 20 minutes before leaving the bar. One of the passengers said he didn’t notice anyone following them as they left. However, when they arrived at Hunting Creek Lane, someone fired three or four shots through the rear of the Ford Explorer. It appeared that the front and rear windshields of the vehicle had been shot, as well as a tail light and rear fender.
The driver of the SUV told police that the incident may be related to a revenge shooting that took place several months ago between two other men whose names were not released by police.
