If you’d driven through the filled parking lot of the well-known restaurants on Windy Hill Road last night, you would have seen at least two Cobb County police cars and a security car on the premises. But on Friday night, reportedly according to witnesses, there was no security or police around.

The eateries Pappadeaux and Pappasito’s basically share a huge parking area between them, which, on any given night, is packed with vehicles. Police say it was around 10:15 Friday night when husband and wife Anthony and Cynthia Welch had just left Pappadeaux after celebrating her birthday. As they walked to their car someone approached them. Family members reportedly say it was an attempted robbery that ended with the Welches being shot. Forty-eight-year-old Anthony was pronounced dead at the hospital. Cynthia, also 48, is expected to survive.
