1 shot at popular Atlanta restaurant, police say

It happened just after 1 a.m. on Tuesday.

ATLANTA — Police are still trying to determine if a man found shot early Tuesday morning at the popular J.R. Crickets restaurant in Atlanta was in an altercation with someone -- or if he was just an innocent bystander. 

Just after 1 a.m., Atlanta Police received a call about a man shot in the leg at the restaurant off North Avenue. He was transported to Grady Hospital in stable condition. 

At the hospital the victim told officers he had been sitting at the bar when someone shot him. He said he did not know who or why someone shot him.

Police are reviewing surveillance video to see if they can learn more about what led to the shooting and who shot the man.
