Shooting At Decatur Pizza Hut

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — DeKalb County police say a customer at a Pizza Hut shot a restaurant employee before using the gun to kill himself.

The double shooting happened Saturday at one of the pizza chain’s stores on Covington Highway in metro Atlanta.

Police say a customer walked into the store and got into an argument with an employee before drawing a gun and shooting the worker, then himself.

The gunman died at the scene. Police say the wounded employee has been hospitalized in critical condition.

Police say they have not determined the relationship between the employee and the shooter, but other workers at the store said they knew the gunman.
