Three people were shot, including a father and a son, at an apartment complex in Buckhead early Friday morning, police said.

Atlanta officers were called to the 32Hundred complex on Lenox Road, just around the corner from the Lenox MARTA station, at about 4:45 a.m. No victims were immediately identified until officers learned a 31-year-old man and his 12-year-old son were taken to Piedmont Atlanta Hospital in a private vehicle. Police said both were shot multiple times.

A third victim, who police said they believe was involved in the incident, flagged down officers later and requested assistance. The man was stable when taken to a hospital.

Authorities said they are trying to determine what led to the shooting. No information was provided on a suspect.

In October 2021, a man was shot multiple times at the same apartment complex, police previously said. In January 2022, a woman told Atlanta police that she was robbed by several men and beaten at an intersection near the complex.
