ATLANTA (AP) — Police say a driver shot at three pedestrians in a residential part of Atlanta, injuring one, before crashing into and severely injuring a man at an apartment complex hours later. The apparent drive-by shootings occurred Saturday morning in Atlanta’s wealthy Buckhead neighborhood, where residents have been vocal about a rise in violent crime across the city. The suspect was detained at the scene of the car crash about 1 mile away. Deputy Atlanta Police Chief Charles Hampton Jr. said during a news conference that the man may have been “suffering from some type of mental health crisis.” Investigators did not immediately identify the suspect.
