ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police say two men who were wounded in an officer-involved shooting are hospitalized in stable condition.

Department spokesman Greg Lyon says a vehicle that was reported stolen was seen at Lenox Mall in the city’s Buckhead neighborhood Thursday afternoon.

Lyon says the vehicle was associated with suspicious activity in the mall’s parking and pulled away shortly after. Lyon says an off-duty officer was directing traffic at an intersection when a marked police car pulled up near the stolen vehicle.

Lyon says the occupants of the stolen vehicle drove toward the off-duty officer, who fired shots and wounded both of the car’s passengers.

Lyon says the suspects fled toward a nearby residential complex and crashed into a garage. Police say the two were apprehended and no officers were injured.
