Police Cpl. Collin Flynn told WSB-TV a 911 call reporting an ‘active shooter’ came in just before 2pm at a manufacturing building in the 600 block of Satellite Boulevard.

‘There was at least one male shooter who came inside the business while multiple people were inside working and opened fire,’ Flynn said. ‘At some point while opening fire he has shot at least one victim.’
