this area is directly southeast of Atlanta, SE of the airport about 10 miles or so. There’s an outlet mall etc.

Generally an OK place, not great.

Why they came to ATL Medical Center is a bit of an oddity. LONG transport. Also Grady has a Tier 1 Trauma center, and surgeons with deep resumes treating gunshot wounds.

I am a former ATL resident.

UPDATE - Atlanta Medical Center is also a level 1 trauma center, not surprising given its location. Part of Wellstar.

Prayers for the officers.
