Victim of Cobb County Taco Mac shooting was father of 1-year-old, grandmother says

We’re learning more about the man who was fatally shot outside of a Cobb County Taco Mac on Monday.

Larry Miller’s grandmother told WSB the 24-year-old was the father of a 1-year-old baby.

Miller was shot multiple times outside the restaurant during the busy lunch rush.

Police said the suspect, Peter Lampley, was Miller’s co-worker and that the shooting started inside a car in the restaurant’s parking lot.

Witnesses reported that Lampley chased Miller with his pants down.

Miller’s grandmother told WSB’s Michele Newell that she does not know why his coworker would shoot him.

WSB spoke to a man off-camera who said he worked with both Lampley and Miller and also doesn’t know what caused Lampley to start shooting.

Kristy Owens, a witness, said she heard multiple shots and made the 911 call. She saw paramedics performing CPR on Miller, who was lying on the sidewalk. Owens said Lampley ran out of the restaurant wearing no clothes.

“When he came out of the restaurant, into the parking lot, he had no shirt on and his pants down to his ankles with no underwear on,” Owens said.

Police took Lampley into custody.
