Martin has been charged with murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. He is being held in the Fulton County Jail without bail.

The shooting occurred around 4:30 a.m., in the 24-hour location located on Fulton Industrial Boulevard at Shirley Drive. According to the initial police investigation, a verbal altercation occurred between Martin and a customer.

At some point, the suspect pulled a gun and shot the customer.

That male customer was declared dead at the scene. The victim was identified as 33-year-old Adrian Mosley of Atlanta.

According to a witness who was eating at the Waffle House, two men and a woman entered the restaurant. The woman got into it first with the security guard and she was told that they had to leave the property.

She left, but the other two guys stayed. The cook refused to serve them because they were acting disorderly.

The two men got into it with the cook and the victim threatened the cook. “Come out and I’ll shoot you up,” the victim told the cook according to the witness.

That’s when the suspect shot the victim.
