A shooting outside a Glenwood Drive convenience store in Decatur reportedly claimed the life of 15-year-old Keaira Palmer and left two others injured Wednesday morning, August 3, 2016.
According to 11 Alive News, the shooting “took place in front of the S & N Superette convenience store on the 4100 Glenwood Road….After being shot, the girl ran to a nearby apartment complex. There she collapsed and neighbors tried to revive her.”
Miss Palmer’s mother, Lawanda Riley, reportedly told WSBTV News, her daughter had walked to the convenience store for chips and a drink when she was “caught in the crossfire of a drive-by shooting.”
Three other victims, ages 18, 19 and 25, were also shot during what police called “a running gun battle,” WSBTV reports. Two victims were reportedly transported to the hospital with injuries. Their current conditions have not been released.

Choosing the Right Attorney
Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.
Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!
You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:
– RULE 7.3, ABA MODEL RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT.
If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.
Contingency Fees Disclaimer: “Contingent attorneys’ fees refers only to those fees charged by attorneys for their legal services. Such fees are not permitted in all types of cases. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client.”
