LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Police in suburban Atlanta say a man survived a fall from a balcony after he was shot at a party early on New Year’s Day.

Gwinnett County police Sgt. Brian Doan said in a news release that officers arrived at the Lake Sweetwater Apartments in unincorporated Lawrenceville just before 1:45 a.m. Friday. They found a 23-year-old man lying unconscious on the ground.

Doan says the initial investigation shows the man was shot at a party he was attending and then fell 10 to 15 feet from the balcony to the ground below.

The man, whose name was not immediately released, was in stable condition and was speaking with investigators.

Doan said police did not immediately have any suspects. The investigation is ongoing and police ask any witnesses to call them.
