Man shot in shoulder, foot near Atlanta strip club

A man said he was shot and chased by four men in an Atlanta strip club early Friday.

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.

At Grady, Arnold told police he was inside Magic City in the 200 block of Forsyth Street when he saw four men running after him. Arnold then ran out of the club, realized he was shot and went to the bus station for help.

“The victim advises he was being chased by four individuals,” Atlanta police spokesman Donald Hannah said. “The investigation is underway to gather additional information.”
