Two 16-year-olds were both shot and treated at a local hospital.

The incident started during an argument between the suspect and a dissatisfied customer outside the Taco Bell, according to South Fulton Police Capt. Marcus Dennard.

Dennard said that the suspect went back into the Taco Bell where he retrieved the assault rifle, then went back outside and began an argument with individuals in a second car that approached the fast foot restaurant.

Police said that an exchange of gunfire then took place, injuring the 16-year-olds.

One witness to the incident who says his car was shot at said that he was just trying to get Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza.

"He got his gun and started shooting at that car, they started shooting back, and then he started shooting at our car. He shot the hood of our car and the side of our car," Jalen Jackson said. "All of this because we came to get the new Mexican Pizza that just came back out."
