3 People Shot Inside Kandi Burruss’ Atlanta Restaurant
Updated Sunday, February 16 @ 11:00 am ET: The RHOA star has released an official statement on her Instagram page, providing additional details about the incident.
“My family and I are truly saddened by the unfortunate events that occurred at Old Lady Gang (OLG) Camp Creek, on the evening of February 14th, an evening that was meant to celebrate love, unfortunately turned into something quite different,” she posted. “Our prayers and thoughts go out to the individuals that were harmed or in any way negatively impacted. We are aware that this matter is being actively investigated by law enforcement and we are cooperating with law enforcement to bring to justice those involved.
As African-American business owners, it has been our goal to invest in our community by bringing jobs, quality dining, and a positive experience to the greater Atlanta area; we hope that you know and understand that the acts of violence that occurred yesterday evening do not, in any way, serve as a reflection of OLG or its values.
We appreciate all of the love and prayers that have come our way and we encourage anyone with any information regarding any aspects of the events that occurred to please reach out to law enforcement as soon as possible.”
According to an updated post from CNN, the shooter got away.
A man entered The Old Lady Gang and shot one person in a confrontation, CNN confirmed. The RHOA star owns the restaurant with her husband, Todd Tucker.
Two bystanders were also shot in the incident, the network said. The injuries to all three are not expected to be life-threatening, however, and police believe it to be an isolated incident.
The RHOA veteran has yet to make a statement about the shooting.
Just yesterday, she shared a throwback photo from her wedding in honour of Valentine’s Day.
