Atlanta police are looking for three to five suspects after a woman was assaulted and a man was shot Friday night, Lt. Paul Guerrucci told the AJC.



The incident occurred on Whitefoord Avenue in northeast Atlanta. The call came in as a pedestrian robbery, Guerrucci said.



The suspects were waiting outside the house and grabbed a woman walking by, who was not their target, in an effort to gain entry into the house, he said. They then fired into the house, hitting a man at least once in the chest.



The man was transported to a hospital in critical condition and has been upgraded to stable condition, Guerrucci said.



No suspects are in custody, and the investigation is continuing.
