Woman shot after refusing to hand over keys in carjacking at Atlanta mall

Around the South

ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say a Macy’s worker was shot outside an Atlanta mall on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

Atlanta police say the employee was shot in the stomach shortly after noon Saturday in an attempted carjacking in the Lenox Square parking deck.

Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos says the woman was approached by two men and refused to hand over her keys.

Police were working to find the suspects. They left the parking garage on foot after the failed carjacking. 

The shooting comes one week after a man was wounded by gunfire at Cumberland Mall, another metro Atlanta shopping center.
