Two men shot while driving through SW Atlanta neighborhood

ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Atlanta police said two men were shot while driving through the Pittsburg community in Southwest Atlanta just after midnight Wednesday morning.

The shooting happened on Humphries Street, but the men were able to drive a few blocks away to Coleman Street before calling 911.

Capt. Tim Peek said one of the victims was only grazed by a bullet, while his passenger was struck in the torso and had to be rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital.

"They didn't know who actually shot them," Peek said. "They were just driving down the street and someone opened fire on their vehicle, possibly for a mistaken identification. It's a pretty heavily-populated area, so we're trying to see if we can identify some other witnesses so we can get some more information."

Peek said both victims were in stable condition.
