ATL authorities were called to the Mandarin Oriental hotel on Peachtree Road where officers on the scene found two tour buses that had been shot multiple times, Espy said.
“Witnesses could only provide a limited description of the suspect vehicles,” Espy added. “They were described as two white vehicles, possibly a Corvette-style vehicle and an SUV. No one was injured.”
It’s unclear at the moment whether Wayne was actually on the tour bus.
