Report: Teen shot trying to rob Clayton County apartment resident

Three Clayton County teens are in police custody and a fourth is being treated for a gunshot wound after police say the victim of an attempted robbery fought back.

Channel 2 Action News reported that when the four boys tried to rob a man at the Laurel Park Apartments near Riverdale around 3 a.m. Tuesday, the man shot one of the teens in the stomach.

The man called police, and the teens were found in another part of the complex after they called for medical help, according to Channel 2.

While the teens live in or near the complex, they did not know the man they were allegedly trying to rob, the station reported.

Police have not said whether the victim of the robbery attempt will be charged in the shooting.
