Authorities have identified the man responsible for shooting three individuals in the food court of Peachtree Center in downtown Atlanta on Tuesday afternoon. The Atlanta police intervened and shot the suspect shortly after the attack occurred.

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, an altercation took place inside the food court at around 2 p.m involving a convicted felon named Jeremy Malone from Morrow. Malone is alleged to have shot the individual he was arguing with and then proceeded to shoot two more individuals, causing them injuries.

Malone faced several charges, including aggravated assault and cruelty to children, resulting in his booking into the Fulton County Jail on Friday morning.

The victims of the incident have been identified by the police. They include a 47-year-old man from Grayson, a 69-year-old woman from East Point, and a 70-year-old woman from Atlanta. However, their identities have not yet been disclosed to the public.

According to law enforcement officials, Malone has a history of incarceration and has been arrested a total of 11 times before.

Kemba Walker Jr., a witness to the incident, stated that he initially heard a single shot and assumed someone had dropped something. However, as he heard more shots, his thoughts changed, and he saw people running and scattering in panic.

At the moment, Malone is in custody at the Fulton County Jail.
