MIDTOWN: 3 teens stable, 1 arrested after shooting

ATLANTA -- Three teens are in stable condition and a fourth is behind bars following a shooting in Midtown Thursday night.

Witnesses told police two groups of black males had gotten into a fight at 10th and Peachtree streets after leaving Screen on the Green.

Atlanta Police spokesman Carlos Campos said shortly before 11 p.m., an 18-year-old male who had been shot in the leg was found a block away at 10th Street and Crescent Avenue. He was taken to Atlanta Medical Center. 

Two more victims with similar wounds turned up at separate local hospitals -- a 17-year-old boy at Southern Regional Hospital and a 16-year-old boy at Grady Memorial Hospital. Both had been shot in the leg.

All three shooting victims were listed in stable condition. None of their names have been released.

Police have not confirmed if any of the teens actually attended the Screen on the Green. Security has been stepped up at the popular Piedmont Park events after a shooting during a movie screening last June.
