ATLANTA -- A 23-year-old man was taken to the hospital after being shot in Midtown Atlanta on Wednesday.
According to Ralph Woolfolk of the Atlanta Police Department, the man was alert, conscious and breathing after being shot in the back on 8th Street near Juniper Street. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition.
Neighbors said that the incident was a bit unnerving, as that type of violence has not been seen in that area in a long time.
Police said it appeared the victim knew the suspect, but said the victim was not being cooperative with officers. Police said they are looking for at least two people in a light-colored sedan, who they said were involved in the shooting.
No other injuries were reported.
