ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Police say two people were shot and one person was pinned under a vehicle in northwest Atlanta Wednesday evening.

The incident occurred in the 1800 block of Joseph E. Boone Blvd. NW.

Atlanta police spokesperson Sgt. John Chafee told CBS46 the incident started when a group of people pulled up in a vehicle and opened fire at another group of people, who also returned fire.

Chafee said the man pinned under the vehicle was trying to avoid being shot, but the driver of the vehicle -- who also fled -- didn't park it, which is why it rolled onto the man.

The man pinned under the vehicle was last listed in critical condition, according to Chafee. Meanwhile, both shooting victims were stable. One man was shot in the hand, while the other was shot in the leg.

The names of the victims and suspects have not been released by authorities.
