Recruiting Atlanta police officers is easier said than done

A man was found wounded early Saturday morning after a shooting in the area of Ansley Mall in Midtown Atlanta.

Atlanta police said officers were dispatched to 1544 Piedmont Road, which is the address to the development containing the mall, restaurants and various other establishments. Police found the man, whose identity wasn’t released, at 1 a.m. Saturday.

Police didn’t say where precisely the man was found at the development clustered at the intersection of Piedmont Road and Monroe Drive. He was stable when he was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

“The preliminary investigation indicates there was a dispute involving several people that escalated to the victim being shot,” a police spokesman said in a statement. “Investigators responded to the scene and are working to identify the suspect and determine the circumstances surrounding the incident.”
