The suspect entered the restaurant and targeted another man throughout Old Lady Gang Shooting, Glover told. In the process of shooting that man, the suspect also shot two bystanders.
“We are actively looking for a suspect but do not have any further information at this time,” Glover said. No description of the suspect was presented.

Old Lady Gang is one of two restaurants of its name in the metro Atlanta area. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss-Tucker and her husband Todd Tucker are behind the southern-style cuisine restaurants.
One of the witnesses, who were stationed at a nearby restaurant watched the episode unfold. “I was real quiet at first then I heard the scream and I saw the guy run out. I was just worried about my safety,” she said. “I didn’t know who he was going for, what was on his mind. I was worried about my safety. I was trying to get out of there,” she stated. Meanwhile, her other friend was queueing up for dinner when the shooting took place.
Serving Southern cuisine, Old Lady Gang is owned by Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, and named after Burruss’ mother and two aunts, according to the restaurant’s website. The first restaurant opened in Atlanta in 2016, and the East Point location — situated in a large shopping complex about 5 miles (8 kilometers) west of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport — followed in 2018. There’s also an outpost at the Atlanta Hawks’ home, State Farm Arena.
Burruss has been a cast member on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” since its second season in 2009 and met Tucker, a former line producer, on the show.
She’s appeared on other shows, including the 2019 iteration of “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition.” She became famous in the 1990s as a member of the R&B group Xscape and co-wrote TLC’s hit “No Scrubs.”
