ATLANTA – Atlanta police are investigating a shooting that took place late Saturday night near Centennial Olympic Park.

Just before 10:00 PM, the APD confirmed that five people had been shot dead in the John Portman Boulevard area and Centennial Olympic Park Drive. According to the police, the victims were children or young adults between the ages of 15 and 19.

Police said they found three people and two others kidnapped someone and took them to hospital.

All five victims are in a stable state.

Police believe the quarrel occurred outside Waffle House at 135 Andrew Young International Blvd Northwest and there was a shooting.

A spokesman for Waffle House said there were no customers at the restaurant at the time because the building was locked and only served through a window.

The police found three weapons and a stolen vehicle.

Police have not released any descriptions of the suspects and the APD is investigating.
