ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

A man is recovering at Grady Hospital Tuesday after he was shot along a southwest Atlanta road early Tuesday.

Captain Adam Lee III told CBS Atlanta that three young men were walking on Alison Court just before 2 a.m. when they noticed a green Ford Explorer with three people in it following them at a slow pace.

A witness told police they attempted to flee the area, but two men jumped out of the car and began shooting at them.

The victim was shot in the arm and the buttocks and was taken to Grady in stable condition.

Lee said the shooting is believed to be in retaliation for an altercation over drugs that took place earlier.

Police said there have been no arrests and the incident is under investigation.
