One man was injured last night after an anti-gay gang pulled a drive-by on a hopping homo bar. The drama began in the evening at a gas station next to Atlanta’s WETbar. A few of the bar’s patrons were in the station when an unidentified man started talking trash, “I don’t understand why there are so many faggots here.” Yes, hordes of homos can be confusing.
The man then got into a black Blazer, which pulled in front of the bar to yell more thoughtful epithets firing into the crowd:
The group told police they saw the suspect get into the back of the Blazer and as they walked past WETbar, the SUV drove up to them and more anti-gay slurs were shouted at them.
The suspect then fired a gun four or five times at the group, grazing a 28-year-old man in the leg, according to the police report. The shooting victim was treated at a local hospital and is in stable condition, the report said.
Obviously the police are treating this as a hate crime. Says police chief Darlene Harris, “This is definitely a hate crime because of what was yelled at the victims.”
