The first incident happened around noon in northwest Atlanta, where officers were dispatched to West Lake Avenue and Joseph E. Boone Boulevard. When they arrived on scene, they were advised that the victim was at a nearby fire station, police said. The man was stable when he was taken to a hospital.
The preliminary investigation revealed that the man had been involved in a fight with the suspected gunman prior to the shooting, police said.
“It appears the shooting is related to the dispute,” police said but did not clarify if the suspect and victim knew each other.
Authorities said they are still trying to identify the suspect in the earlier shooting.
