Re: Saints vs 49ers playoffs
Saints fans in Atlanta are pretty upset about the loss
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Two men who were rooting for the 49ers over the Saints were shot in the parking lot of an Applebee's restaurant in unincorporated Duluth Saturday night, according to Gwinnett County Police
Police responding to a report of shots fired in the parking lot of the Applebee’s at 2085 Pleasant Hill Drive, found Christopher Middleton, 30, of Stone Mountain, with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center in critical condition. They also dicovered Corey Adams, 30, of Duluth with a minor graze wound to his head. He was treated on the scene and released.
Adams told Channel 2 Action News that he was at the restaurant celebrating with a friend before the shooting happened.
He said he and his friend were watching an NFL playoff game and rooting for the San Francisco 49ers. He said a New Orleans Saints fan took offense to his cheering and had words with him....
Investigators said all three men had been inside the Applebee’s watching a football game. Ayro became upset with Middleton and Adams and made a comment that he would be back for them and left the restaurant, police said. A short time later
, Ayro confronted the two men in the parking lot and fired on them with a handgun.
