Another said, “Do not come to Arbor Place Mall in Douglasville. We made it inside the door and we was warned there was someone inside with a gun. As soon as we got to the door to go outside we heard screams and gun shots. Luckily we made it back to our car safely. I’m so thankful the Lord made us late coming tonight and those 2 girls just happened to meet us and warn us”.
