ATLANTA -- The security guard at a Cleveland Avenue apartment complex shot an armed man in the leg early Wednesday.

It happened at around 1:15 a.m. at the Pavilion Place Apartments.

Atlanta Police Capt. Tim Peek said the incident began with an argument between the armed man and a woman. Peek said the security guard responded to the argument and got into a scuffle with the man.

When the man pulled a revolver, pointed it at the guard and refused commands to drop the weapon, the guard shot the man in the leg.

The wounded man fled into a nearby wooded area where officers using a tracking dog located him.

The unidentified man was transported to Grady Hospital in stable condition.

Capt. Peek said the shooting remains under investigation.
