The incident, which was partially recorded and posted to WorldStar Hip Hop, took place at 8 PM on Sunday.
The site of the shooting, a local Chevron gas station, was abuzz with local residents.
Authorities were informed that two people had been injured after an altercation with the suspect left to the aforementioned individual opening fire.
Upon arrival, Atlanta PD was met with resistance, with several individuals claiming that white officers were not welcome in the area.
In the video, a white officer was the target of racism while the two other black officers did not seem to draw any criticism from the crowd.
“No white cops,” one shouted.
“Get your white face out of here,” another said.
After numerous threats the officer left the area, heading towards a police cruiser but the crowd followed him.
“I’ll knock you the f*** out,” a man screamed at the officer while another man in an “I can’t breathe shirt” put his hand in the officer’s face.
