Gwinnett County police said a man who was shot outside Dave & Buster’s at Sugarloaf Mills on Saturday night is expected to survive.
Police said 19-year-old Aaron Autrey suffered a single gunshot wound to his lower back.
“(Autry) was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for his injury and expected to survive,” police said in a statement.
Autrey was the only one at the mall who was wounded. Police spoke to four other witnesses at the scene.
Autrey told police he did not know the shooter. He told investigators he and his friends allegedly got into an altercation with another group inside the mall. The fight carried over to the parking lot when the suspects began firing shots at Autrey and his friends.
“Detectives are working to develop leads and believe the incident was isolated,” the police statement said.
