He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical but stable condition, but not before he provided police with information on his assailants, Senzer said. Witnesses in the lobby of the building were also cooperating with police.
Because the men were masked, investigators know little about their identities.
“At this point, we really don’t have much to go on,” Senzer said.
They know the men exited a white four-door pickup truck, possibly an older model Nissan Frontier, stopped on Peachtree Street before they ran toward the victims.
This is the second time since Saturday someone has been accosted as they entered their home.

Three armed men ambushed a resident as he entered his high-end Buckhead apartment building early Saturday and robbed him, Atlanta police said.
The entire incident at the Skyhouse Buckhead was captured on surveillance video.
Atlanta police told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday there is no link between the the two incidents.
