ATLANTA (CBS46) — A man and woman are the latest victims of a double shooting outside yet another Atlanta nightclub.

It happened at around 2:45 a.m. outside of Traffik Kitchen and Cocktails, also known as Club Traffik, at the intersection of Crescent Avenue and 12th Street in midtown. Police tell CBS46 the two were standing outside when they heard gunfire from a vehicle in an apparent drive-by shooting.

The investigation found that the man had reportedly been involved in an altercation earlier that night before the shooting took place.

Both the man and the woman he was with were shot at least once. They were taken to Grady Hospital and their conditions remain unknown at this time.

The shooter remains at large. APD could be seen speaking to witnesses and collecting video surveillance in the area.

This is the fourth overnight shooting at an Atlanta establishment this week. On Monday, a similar dispute in front of Loca Luna restaurant escalated to gunfire injuring a man. The following night, a shooting at Chic Restaurant and Lounge took place. Luckily, no one was injured. On Wednesday, a 25-year-old man was killed after a dispute at Blue Flame Lounge turned violent. All four incidents are not believed to be connected.
