The Atlanta Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying at least three suspects wanted in a triple shooting in Buckhead.

According to a news release, on May 15 at about 7:45 p.m., officers responded to a 911 call in the Home Depot parking lot at 2525 Piedmont Road regarding three men being shot. When they arrived, they found three adult males who sustained gunshot wounds.

“The victims were alert, conscious and breathing and transported to the hospital in stable condition,” the release stated. “Preliminary investigation indicates the shooting occurred during a dispute between a large group of people attending a pool party (next door at the Peninsula at Buckhead apartments).

“The dispute escalated into to the lobby and then outside of the apartment complex, which resulted in the shooting. Investigators are working to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident. The investigation continues.”

The first suspect is described as a black male with black hair and black or brown eyes and was seen wearing a white T-shirt.
