Police in Atlanta arrested a man who walked into a Publix Supermarket at Atlantic Station carrying five guns and wearing body armor.
Police were called to the grocery store around 1:30 p.m on Wednesday. They met with a manager who told them a man came in with a rifle and headed straight toward a bathroom, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
“A witness observed the male and alerted store management, who then notified police,” Atlanta police spokesman Officer Anthony Grant told AJC.
Officers saw the man leaving the bathroom and took him into custody. He was later identified as 22-year-old Rico Marley. Officers found two long guns and three pistols, all of which were concealed. He has been charged with reckless conduct.
“We are cooperating with local law enforcement on an incident that occurred earlier today in our Atlantic Station store,” a Publix spokesperson said in a statement. “We are thankful that there were no injuries, and all were able to exit the store safely. The store is currently closed.”
This latest scare came just days after a gunman opened fire in a King Soopers supermarket in Boulder, Colo. killing 10 people including a police officer. And a little over a week after 8 people–mostly Asian women– were killed in three spa shootings in the Atlanta area.
