ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police are investigating after a man was shot in the leg outside a popular shopping mall.

Police tell local media the man was alert, conscious and breathing following the shooting, which happened just before 7 p.m. Sunday in a parking lot at Lenox Square mall.

The victim told officers he got into an argument with the suspect over a woman he met on Instagram, a social media application. The victim said the suspect then pulled out a gun and started shooting.

Police say the suspect then jumped into a silver or gray pickup truck driven by a woman and left the scene.

Police say two cars were damaged in the shooting.
