ATLANTA (AP) - Police say four men are hospitalized after being
shot in what might have been a drug-related gun battle in southwest
A police spokesman, Officer James Polite, says the four - in
their mid 20s to mid 30s - were found in a muffler shop parking lot
and a nearby business just after the shooting was reported about 3
p.m. Tuesday on Metropolitan Parkway.
Polite says they are in surgery at Grady Memorial Hospital. He
does not know their conditions but says "one is more bad off than
the other three."
Polite says investigators found a handgun, 10 spent shell
casings, narcotics and a large amount of cash.
They are unsure what roles the wounded men might have played in the shooting or whether a suspect may be at large.
