Stone Mountain man shot
STONE MOUNTAIN - A Stone Mountain man was shot in the abdomen Sunday by an acquaintance who was dropping him off at Highland Grove Apartments.
Police found 22-year-old Reginald Millard Storey about 12:30 a.m. lying in the parking lot and holding a towel over the wound. Storey said he and his friend Laron had gone to a bar earlier that evening, according to police reports.

Would-be carjackers flee after woman honks horn
DULUTH - Two unidentified women attempted to hijack a woman's car last week at Circuit City parking lot at 3850 Venture Drive.
The victim, a Lawrenceville woman, had just gotten into her van and locked the doors when two women who were parked next to her in a truck got out and approached. The driver of the truck, whose nose and mouth were partially covered, held a handgun to the victim's windshield and tried to wrench open the door, according to police reports. The suspect shouted at her several times to "open the door, get out," according to police reports, but the victim began honking her horn.
The would-be carjackers then ran back to their pickup truck and fled. No one was able to get a tag number because the license plate on the truck had been covered with black electrical tape.
