ATLANTA -- Authorities say three people have been shot in what appears to have been a robbery attempt just south of Atlanta.

Fulton County Police Sgt. Scott McBride said two people were returning to a unit in the Biscayne Club apartments at about1:15 a.m.Tuesday when they were chased by a group of two to four people.

Police said one of the two people was grazed, and the other was shot in the stomach and hand. McBride said one of the shooting victims returned fire, wounding at least one of the suspects.

Authorities said officers found one of the suspects at a nearby nightclub on Old National Highway and took him into custody.

The wounded are being treated at Grady Memorial Hospital and Atlanta Medical Center.
