Man injured in shooting on Edgewood

ATLANTA -- A man is recovering from the hospital after being shot in a popular party district in the city Sunday morning.

Atlanta Police say bars and businesses in the Edgewood area of Atlanta had only been closed for half an hour when gunfire rang out right around 3 a.m. Police say the shots came from the area near the 400 block of Edgewood Avenue.

A police spokesperson said the streets were still crowded with people heading home when the single victim, 26-year-old Zavian Price, was shot in the right arm.

Emergency officials who responded transported Price to Grady in stable condition, where they interviewed him for information.

According to police, Price told them he was standing near the location when he saw a black Dodge Challenger speeding down Edgewood. He told police he saw a black male with a low-cut black shirt firing a gun as he hung out of the sunroof of the car. 

Police say there was some sort of altercation before the car sped off. 

Right now police still don't have much information about who the shooter was. They also don't know whether the suspect knew the victim. The investigation continues.
