According to Atlanta Police, it happened on Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard, S.W., near the intersection wtih Sells Avenue, S.W., near Morehouse College. Sgt. John Chafee said the officer was parked on the median at about 2 a.m. completing paperwork, when a white Chrysler 300 drove onto the median and struck the front of the patrol car. The cruiser had its blue lights on in the "steady" state, Chafee said, and not flashing at the time of the incident.

The shooter fled the scene, and the victim's condition wasn't immediately clear.

Cobb County police tweeted at 1:50 p.m. there was "no active shooter."

*We are continuing to gather information but this is not an active shooter event," police said. "It appears this was an isolated incident."

Aside from the wounded shopper, no one else was injured, according to a mall spokeswoman.

"An altercation between three individuals escalated this afternoon in our food court," said Lindsay Kahn, a rep for mall owners Brookfield Properties.

"While we are disheartened by this isolated incident, we are grateful there were no further injuries and that our security and partners at the Cobb County Police Department were on site to contain the situation. This was a frightening experience for our tenants and guests and we are assisting the police with their developing investigation."

Multiple police agencies from the Atlanta area responded to the scene, as shoppers streamed out of the mall.

One Instagram user posted video of the chaotic scene, as shoppers "started running like crazy."

"We just came to get some Chinese food," the shopper wrote, "then all hell broke lose."
