2 hospitalized after shooting near Georgia Dome
ATLANTA - Atlanta police say two people were shot near the Georgia Dome just before the Falcons' first regular season home game and are hospitalized in stable condition.
Department spokesman John Chafee says a man was shot in the leg and a woman was in the arm Sunday afternoon about three blocks south of the dome, where thousands gathered to watch the Falcons play the St. Louis Rams.
Chafee says that just before the incident, the victims argued with the shooter at a Subway restaurant. No arrests have been made.
Tailgaters gathered around the dome Sunday, but police say they're unsure whether the victims were headed to the game.
Police say a call on the shooting came in around 12:35 p.m. Kickoff was at 1 p.m.
