ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) — Video of a community-wide brawl at the Forest Cove Apartments in Atlanta hit Instagram Wednesday and left many speechless.
The video, posted to Instagram by user 2glocks1stick, shows a group of about 15 to 20 people fighting, some of which were armed with baseball bats.
An eyewitness said a woman who used a baseball bat on someone in the fight wasn’t to blame.
"She’s the defender. That’s the whole family. They came and attacked her," said the witness who didn’t want to be identified by CBS46.

Police were sent to the complex on two separate occasions with victims describing hearing gunshots, receiving stab wounds, and a broken ankle.
Many young children are seen in the video, watching the entire incident unfold. After the dust settles, several shoes and articles of clothing can be seen strewn about the area. It’s unclear what started the brawl.
The management of the complex referred all questions to the home office. Families who live in the complex said the only solution they have is to move.
Atlanta Police are still investigating the brawl and asking the public for help in identifying the people in the video.
