A man is recovering from gunshot wounds after he and another man were attacked in a Midtown parking lot early Thursday.

Capt. Adam Lee III said the men told police were searching for their parked car at the City Scape at Midtown Apartment homes off City Line Ave at around 12:40 a.m. when they were approached by two men in what police say was a robbery attempt.

One of the men, believed to be step-brothers, was shot once in the left arm and once in the upper chest. Lee said the crime scene covers a broad area, since the victim walked to the other said of the complex after he was shot.

The 22-year-old gunshot victim was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition. The other man was not injured in the incident, according to Lee.

Neither man lived at the apartment complex.

It is unclear whether or not anything was taken from the men.

Two men were seen leaving the scene, but police have not released any information on possible suspects.
