Performance artist and musician Daniel Scoggins, better known as Cousin Dan, was shot leaving 97 Estoria in Cabbagetown around 3 a.m. Friday morning.
According to the narrative provided by Atlanta Police, Scoggins was approached by two hooded black males in the bar’s parking lot as he opened the driver’s door of his car. One of the men said, “what’s up with it,” according to the statement, and fired 3 or 4 shots at Scoggins, striking him once in the right side of his back. The shot apparently chipped the top of his hip bone and exited through the side of his stomach, Scoggins said.
Scoggins managed to get in, start his car, and drive out of the parking lot in reverse to escape. Police said three bullet holes were visible on the left rear passenger door of the vehicle.
