After hearing gunfire shortly after 1 a.m., an officer on patrol found Martinez Antwan Arnold outside the Greyhound station on Forsyth Street, according to the incident report. Arnold had gunshot wounds to his left shoulder and left foot.

Officers treated him on the scene before he was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
