The Atlanta Police Department is also investigating a “suspicious package” left at the same Publix supermarket, but it is not clear if it is related to Marley’s arrival.

Police remained outside the supermarket later that day, kicking customers out of the store and shutting down one of the main streets in front of the store.

On Monday, Ahmad, 21, was reported to have used the AR-15 to kill 10 people, including a policeman, at a King Soopers supermarket.
