A horrifying scene was captured on video at Lenox Mall in Atlanta Georgia capturing the point-blank shooting of a security guard by two individuals dressed in all black.
This comes as Attorney General Merrick Garland continues to claim that white supremacy is the gravest threat in the United States, while justifying left wing violence perpetrated by individuals with anti-police sentiment and ignoring increasingly frequent reports of growing crime waves in American cities.

The video appears to shows two African American hooded individuals dressed in all black wearing face masks. The two approach the lone security guard as one proceeds to point a pistol at him. The officer walks back and appears to try and reason with the assailants, who at one point back the guard into a corner.
As one individual points the firearm at the security guard, the other reaches down seemingly to retrieve the officers weapon. The guard backs away in protest as the individual with the gun fires a shot point blank into his chest. The video captured by nearby bystanders ends immediately after the shot rings out, suggesting that those filming ended the video in order to flee to safety.
Local news reported that two 15-year old individuals, one male and one female, were arrested outside the nearby Westin Buckhead Atlanta hotel and charged with Criminal Attempt to Commit Murder, Armed Robbery, Aggravated Assault, Tampering with Evidence, Possession of a Firearm by a Person Under the Age of 18 Years, and Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony.
ATLANTA — Two 15-year-olds have been charged in the shooting at a popular Buckhead shopping area on Sunday evening that left a security guard with critical injuries, police said.
Authorities confirmed that officers were called to 3393 Peachtree Road – the address of Lenox Square mall – to reports of shots fired at around 8:30 p.m. Upon arrival, officers found the victim, a security guard in his early 40s, who had been shot in the torso. They were able to provide aid to the guard before he was taken to the hospital for treatment.
“We don’t know the involvement of other folks but we have based at this particular point in time, we were able to confirm that those two individuals were significantly involved and those are the two we have in custody,” said Deputy Chief Timothy Peek. “Ultimately, they approached him with a gun, and so, from there, will tell us what transpired and what was going on.” The security guard was hospitalized with critical injuries.
