Atlanta Journal Constitution - 03-19


Days before scores of worshipers were gunned down at two New Zealand mosques, several shots were fired toward a mosque in Clayton County, Channel 2 Action News reported. Some of the bullets hit the building while others hit a car with the mosque leader and members of his family inside, officials told the news station. Nobody was injured in the shooting. — The shots were fired about 9 p.m. on March 12, just two days before reports of the mass shootings in Christchurch that left 50 dead and dozens more wounded.
