Wounded man shows up at gas station, calls for help

Just before 4:30 a.m. Thursday, a wounded man walked inside a Brookhaven gas station, asked for the address and called police.

The call from the Chevron gas station in the 2200 block of North Druid Hills came in as a shooting, Brookhaven police Lt. Justin Young said. However, he said officers found the man with a stab wound.

Now, investigators are trying to figure out how the man ended up at the gas station and where and how he was injured. They are checking to see if there was any surveillance footage that may offer leads in the case, Young said.

“We're still not certain yet (if the man was shot or stabbed),” he said. “Soon as the paramedics arrived, they took him right away.”

The man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, he said.
