Atlanta (CBS46)-“He happened to be in the wrong place, at the wrong time.”

Atlanta’s latest shooting is a head scratcher for detectives.

The puzzle has several elements, such as women, armed robbers, and bystanders.

Police said the shooting on Wednesday morning took place in the Sweet Auburn district on Hilliard Street in Atlanta after 3 am.

A policeman arrived on the phone and found a man with a gunshot wound on his leg.

The doctor hurriedly sent the man to the Grady Memorial Hospital, where he was listed in a stable condition.

Police closed several streets in the area and began an investigation.

A police spokesperson said the woman was walking towards her car after quitting her business in the area.

After a while, a stranger approached her. He was armed with a gun.

The armed robber told the woman to give her money — she gave the man $ 20.

That wasn’t enough for the thief. Then he told her to give her a purse.

In just a moment, the woman decided to start running.

He fired while the woman escaped from the robbery.

The bullet struck an innocent bystander who happened to be sitting in a chair in the area.

Investigators are reviewing surveillance footage in the hope of capturing a video of the bad guys in the act.

Anyone with information will be asked to call the crime stopper 404-577-8477.
