Man stable after being shot, dragged out of vehicle during DeKalb fight

A man was shot in the leg and dragged out of a vehicle during a fight in DeKalb County on Saturday evening, according to police.

DeKalb officers were called to the area of Snapfinger Woods Drive and Panola Road around 8 p.m. and found a man in his 30s with a gunshot wound, police said.

The victim told investigators he was riding in a vehicle when a dispute began, police said in a statement. That escalated into the driver pulling out a firearm and shooting the victim in the leg, authorities said. The driver then allegedly stopped the vehicle, dragged the victim out and onto the street and drove away.

The victim was taken to a hospital and was said to be stable.

No other details were released about the victim, suspect or the dispute that led up to the shooting.
