ATLANTA (AP) - Police are investigating a drive-by shooting into a taxicab which left a passenger wounded in Atlanta.

WSB-TV reports that the cab driver told police he had picked up the passenger early Friday morning at Magic City, an adult entertainment club in downtown Atlanta.

CBS 46 reports that a black vehicle pulled alongside the cab near an Interstate 20 interchange and a shooter opened fire, striking the passenger twice in the abdomen. The passenger was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition. His name wasn’t released.

Police say investigators are trying to determine whether the victim had some type of confrontation with the gunman inside or outside the club before the shooting.
