It’s only the beginning of the week and we already have another shooting taken place in Atlanta. On Sunday, 4 people were reported injured in a shooting outside the Trap Music Museum in Atlanta. Police said they arrived at the Trap Music Museum on Travis Street at around 3:40 a.m. and found three men suffering from gunshot wounds. The three men were conscious and were immediately rushed to the hospital for treatment.
The Trap Music Museum shooting
Police said Grady Memorial Hospital reported to the Atlanta Police Department that another woman was admitted into the hospital from a gunshot at the same location. She was allegedly privately driven to the hospital, officers state. Luckily, a dashcam video from an Uber driver caught the intense moment when shots were fired right outside the Trap Music Museum.
“I heard some pops in the distance in the front and then I see everyone is running towards me. A couple of young girls dove behind a car and beside a car,” Clint Rauscher said.
Rauscher was picking someone up for Uber when the shooting occurred.
“I wasn’t concerned too much getting shot I was more concerned about the people in front of me that were running away from it that they might get shot,” Rauscher said.
Police said the preceding investigation shows the four victims were walking to their cars when a suspect or suspects were driving a black Dodge Charger with red stripes began shooting at the group nearby the Trap Music Museum.
As of right now, police have not indicated the reason behind the shooting. As the Trap Music Museum investigation continues, City Councilman Antonio Brown states, “You begin to ask yourself when is it going to end. It’s terrifying you have to be concerned about going to the gas station and leaving your keys in the car or leaving the car unlocked,”
Fighting against violence
Apparently the shooting comes after another shooting that took place on Saturday, where three men were shot at a pool party in Lindbergh. Atlanta City Council Member Antonio Brown declared it’s time to restore trust between law enforcement and the community and also talk to gang leaders.
“We can’t continue to look at gangs as adversaries in the city. We have to sit down and have conversations with these gang leaders to understand what needs to happen to reduce gun violence in our communities,” Brown said.
The Trap Music Museum is partially owned by Atlanta native and hip-hop icon T.I. The Museum pays tribute to the popular music genre and has interactive exhibits and an escape room.
