ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

A man is recovering from a gunshot wound to his arm after two men approached him as he was leaving the Foxy Lady Lounge early Thursday morning.

Atlanta Police Capt. Adam Lee III said the 37-year-old man was leaving the club on Moreland Avenue and walking to his car across the street just before 3 a.m.  He was approached by two armed men in a white Lexus who attempted to rob him.

The victim told police he was trying to wrestle the gun from one of the men when the gun went off, striking him in the upper left arm.

The robbers drove away from the scene and the victim returned to the Foxy Lady to call for help. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition.

Police are still searching for the suspects.
