FULTON COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Fulton County police Thursday morning were searching for three masked gunmen involved in an attempted robbery.

It happened around 1 a.m. outside of the International African Market, located at 5070 Old Bill Cook Road in the College Park area.

Witnesses said around two-dozen men were hanging out in chairs outside the restaurant when the gunmen snuck up on them from behind.

"All we heard was screaming, and they just started shooting," said Souleyman Mankouyte, whose father owns the restaurant.

Two men, brothers, were each struck once in the leg. Mankouyte said they're in their early twenties. They were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and expected to make a full recovery.

Police believe it was an attempted robbery. The gunmen left without taking anything.

As of early Thursday morning, they remained at-large.
