A man was hit in the chest Monday night during a drive-by shooting in northwest Atlanta, authorities said.
Officers found the injured man in the 1100 block of Joseph E. Boone Boulevard about 9:15 p.m., Atlanta police said. The scene is in the Bankhead neighborhood of Atlanta.
The man was conscious at the scene and was taken to a hospital. According to investigators, the driver of a white vehicle fired multiple shots at the man, hitting him once.
His condition was unknown Monday morning.
No other information on the driver of the white vehicle was available.
Within an hour of the northwest Atlanta shooting, officers were called to investigate another shooting on the city’s southwest side. A woman was found about 10:15 p.m. with a gunshot wound to her leg in the 3000 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
She was also conscious before she was taken to a hospital for treatment, according to police.
Investigators believe the woman was sitting in her vehicle when she was shot. They are still working to determine the circumstances surrounding the shooting, a police spokesman said Monday night.
