Man shot and another robbed at gunpoint at Georgia Walmart

Occurred January 12, 2013.

Two male assailants shot a man in the leg, in the parking lot of a Walmart outside of Lilburn, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta.  Then they accosted another man, robbing him at gunpoint of his wallet, cell phone, and his car.

From an article:
The suspects, both black males, were armed with a semi-automatic handgun, possibly a .40 calibre Glock, according to a police statement. 
They approached two separate shoppers in the parking lot, shooting one, a 35-year-old male, in the leg when "he did not understand their demands and continued to walk towards the store," the report said. 
The other victim, a 20-year-old male, handed over his keys, wallet and cell phone. The suspects took his car and left the scene. That vehicle is described as a blue 2010 Honda Fit with Georgia tag PFE8356. 
The incident happened just outside Lilburn at the Walmart located at 1825 Rockbridge Road in Stone Mountain. 
Gwinnett Police reviewed Walmart security footage and found that the assailants arrived in a red Honda Civic that had been taken in a carjacking Friday in Atlanta. It was located at the shopping center and impounded.  
The shooting victim was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Gwinnett County Police are asking for anyone with information about this crime to call  770-513-5700.
This is the fourth shooting at a Walmart so far in 2013, and it's only been the first two weeks of the year!
