4 shot in northwest Atlanta

Atlanta police were investigating a scene where four men were shot in northwest Atlanta on Monday night.

The shooting happened just before 10 p.m. in front of an apartment complex off Joseph E. Boone Boulevard, according to Atlanta police Sgt. Greg Lyon.

Initial reports were that all four men were transported to Grady Memorial Hospital alert and conscious. Most of the men were shot in their legs, while one was shot in the side.

Lyon said a woman who lived at the complex was grazed by a bullet, and she was treated at the scene.

The injured men were congregating in the front of the complex and appear to have been shot from across the street, Lyon said.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
