Atlanta police are investigating a shooting that left a man injured near Atlantic Station on Monday afternoon.

Officers responded to a shooting call just before 4 p.m. near Dillard’s at the mixed-use development in Midtown, police said in a news release.

At the scene, officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. The man, who was conscious, was taken to the hospital. Atlanta police did not release his name.

A Mercedes-Benz SUV that was involved in the incident had a huge hole in the driver’s-side window and what appeared to be a bullet hole in the front windshield, Channel 2 Action News reported. A Toyota RAV-4 just a few feet away was also damaged, but it wasn’t clear if that was caused by gunfire or a crash.

In November, a massive brawl broke out at Atlantic Station, where about 300 teenagers were gathered near the bowling alley. When officers tried to disperse the clusters of teens, several were involved in fistfights, according to Atlanta police.

One teen was beaten and punched until he lost consciousness, police confirmed. When he fell to the ground, another teen repeatedly stomped on his head, a police report stated.

A 15-year-old who police identified as the primary aggressor was detained and charged with aggravated assault. He was not named due to his age.
