Crime has troubled other metro Atlanta shopping centers in recent months.

Most recently, Memphis rapper Kenny Muney was injured in a shooting last month as he sat in his vehicle outside an Atlantic Station department store. The week before that shooting, a jewelry store clerk was wounded in a robbery and shooting inside Town Center mall near Kennesaw, according to Cobb County police.

In Atlanta, a high school girl was killed when bullets started flying outside the Glenwood Park shopping plaza near Grant Park. Atlanta police have accused Elizabeth Parham, 31, of murder and aggravated assault in connection with 15-year-old Diamond Johnson’s death. More arrests are possible, according to police.
