Atlanta police are investigating a double shooting in southwest Atlanta.

Just before 11 a.m., police received a report of gunshots in the 2300 block of Fairway Circle.

A man and a woman were shot, police spokesman Sgt. Greg Lyon said. Both were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where the woman was in critical condition.

The man was shot in the jaw, but Lyon described his condition as “not as critical as the female.”

The investigation is ongoing.
