LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Two people were shot Monday inside a suburban Atlanta supermarket that was busy with customers trying to stock up before a winter storm that’s widely predicted to hit the area, police said.

Lawrenceville police spokesman Greg Vaughn told local news outlets that the shooting happened at a Kroger and that two people of interest have been taken into custody. Vaughn said the shooting came after some sort of fight or argument, but he didn’t have details.

“The scene is a little chaotic,” Vaughn told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “You can probably imagine with everybody stocking up on bread and milk,” he said.

Vaughn said the victims, both women, have been hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. He said one woman was shot in the leg and the other in the torso.

Kroger officials said in a prepared statement that no store employees were injured in the noon shooting, and the store was “evacuated and will reopen at a later date.”
