Police: Shooting Victim Arrested on Drug Charges

Atlanta police say a shooting victim is facing drug charges after marijuana was found while he was being treated at a hospital.

Police spokesman John Chafee says 36-year-old Murjani Yearwood was found outside a business about 4 a.m. Sunday.

He had been shot once in a leg and twice in the chest.

Police say Yearwood was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where a small bag of marijuana was found while he was being treated.

Reports say Yearwood is now charged with drug possession.

Police say Yearwood wasn't cooperating with officers, and they couldn't find any witnesses willing to talk about the shooting.
