ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say two suspects were wounded by gunfire during a late-night shootout with Atlanta police.
Police say they tried to stop a car after reports that passengers inside were waving guns, but the driver sped away from officers late Tuesday night.
Police pursued the suspects, who jumped from the car, ran behind a house and began exchanging gunfire with the officers.
Atlanta Police Maj. Jeff Glazier tells WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/1f7ftJO) an 18-year-old man was shot in the leg and a 24-year-old man was shot in the abdomen. Both were hospitalized. Authorities say a 22-year-old suspect was in custody with facial injuries from falling while he tried to run from police.
