July 9, 2018

ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police say four people were robbed and one of them was shot while they had been waiting for an Uber after a wedding reception.

News outlets report the group had left the reception at Capital City Club in Atlanta’s historic Brookhaven neighborhood. They were outside the country club early Sunday when two men in a vehicle saw them waiting.

Jarius Daugherty with the police department tells WAGA-TV one man exited the vehicle with a handgun and demanded the four give up their cellphones, wallets and other belongings.

Daugherty says the gunman shot a man in the group who had attempted to follow him. He was shot in the abdomen and taken to a hospital, but it’s unclear what condition he’s in.

Police are searching for the gunman.
