Students from Clark Atlanta University, Spelman, and Morehouse were celebrating the new school year when violence erupted.

On the night of Aug. 20, hundreds of students gathered on James P. Brawley Drive in Atlanta, Georgia for a back-to-school block party. According to WXIA, police said that someone began shooting an automatic weapon around 10:38 p.m.


Some students recorded the incident on their cell phones and captured the moments where dozens ran for safety. Authorities said a bullet grazed one person and another person was shot. Both victims were rushed to a hospital where their current conditions have yet to be released.

At press time, police have yet to apprehend the suspect.
