Police arrested Marley and found four other guns: a long pistol and three pistols.
Police charged Marley with reckless behavior and demanded a mental health assessment. They take him to the Fulton County Jail.
No one was injured at Publix and the store will remain closed, company spokeswoman Maria Brous told Forbes.
Attempts to contact Marley were unsuccessful.
It is not known if Marley was allowed to go into hiding. Georgian law requires permission to carry a concealed weapon in public, although state restrictions on who can obtain a permit are relatively limited.
Publix grabbed the headlines two years ago when the Florida-based chain urged customers not to bring guns to stores, even though local law allows it.
Marley’s arrest came after two high-profile mass shootings in the United States in recent weeks, one of which took place in the metro Atlanta area. A gunman killed eight people last week at three Atlanta-area spas, and ten people were killed in a shootout in Boulder, Colo. On Monday.
