Police search for clues in Andretti parking lot shooting

MARIETTA — Police in Marietta are looking for a black 2018 Honda believed to be driven by the suspects in Sunday’s shooting outside Andretti Indoor Karting and Games in Marietta.

According to police, at about 7:10 p.m. Sunday night a group of suspects exited their vehicle, what appeared to be a black 2018 Honda Accord in the parking lot of Andretti at 1255 Roswell Road. One of the suspects approached a man who was walking from his vehicle toward the business.

Police say the suspect pointed a handgun at the man and demanded his jewelry and money. The man refused to comply and the suspect immediately fired at least two rounds, with neither round striking the man.

The man, who was also armed, produced his handgun but did not return fire.

Within one minute of the initial gun fire, a Marietta Police officer pulled into the parking lot in his marked police vehicle to report to work for a part-time security assignment at the business.

According to police, when the marked police vehicle entered the lot, the suspects fled the area in their vehicle. Witnesses stopped the officer and told him what had happened.

The suspect vehicle appears to have damage to the passenger side and the front right tire has been replaced with a spare/temporary wheel. Anyone with information about this vehicle or the suspects who were inside it last night is asked to contact the Marietta Police Department, or Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta at 404-577-8477.
