ATLANTA, GA (WGCL ) — A community organization wrote they are concerned about violence in the area after a shooting at a popular mall.
On Friday, Atlanta police responded to a shooting at Lenox Mall where a man was shot and taken to an area hospital.
The latest shooting comes as Atlanta police arrested a man in connection to another shooting at the mall in February.

The group reports they are looking at several options to reduce crime in the area.
“The Buckhead Security Plan will include near-term and longer-term actions to increase the safety and security of people who live in, work in and visit Buckhead for shopping and entertainment.
