2-year-Old Boy Shot During Attempted Robbery in Stone Mountain Recovering in Hospital


A toddler shot during a robbery attempt outside of a Stone Mountain Kroger is in stable condition at an area hospital.

According to police, the boy’s father tried to stop a mugging that was taking place outside of the Kroger at around 1 p.m. on Wednesday. Soon afterward the mugging suspect fired close to 10 shots into the man’s car, injuring his 2-year-old son, authorities say.

Witnesses to the incident say the boy was carried into the supermarket and given first aid by a pharmacist until an ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital.

The gunman fled, but authorities hope that the supermarket’s surveillance system was able to record his image.
