ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A man told Atlanta police he was shot early on Memorial Day after getting off a MARTA train.

A spokesperson with Atlanta police told CBS46 the incident originally occurred in the 1500 block of Murphy Avenue SW, although the arriving officer found the victim in the 1500 block of Melrose Drive while the officer was en route to the original address.

Police say the unidentified man was alert and conscious, but had a small abrasion on the back of his head. The man told authorities that he got off a MARTA train and was walking home when another man pointed a gun out the window of a gray car and opened fire.

The man said there were at least two suspects, according to authorities.

A description was not provided of the suspects accused in the shooting.
