Man walked into Atlanta grocery store with five guns, body armor, police say


The scene comes just two days after a gunman walked into a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado and killed 10 people.

Atlanta police on Wednesday arrested a man after he allegedly walked into the Atlantic Station Publix Super Market with five guns and body armor, according to a report.

Police responded to the store around 1:30 p.m. The manager of the store told officers that a man had entered the supermarket with a rifle and went straight to the restroom, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported, citing Atlanta police spokesman Officer Anthony Grant.
