ATLANTA (AP) - Authorities say a woman has been shot near an Atlanta shopping mall after two men followed her and her boyfriend inside the mall and then tried to rob them.

Atlanta police spokesman Sgt. Warren Pickard tells news outlets that the suspects followed the 23-year-old woman, her child and her boyfriend to their car Wednesday evening after the couple had shopped at Lenox Square in the Buckhead neighborhood.

Pickard says one of the men demanded jewelry he thought the couple had just purchased, but the victims said they had not bought anything.

The man then shot the woman in the chest and the two suspects fled.

Police say the woman was hospitalized and listed in stable condition.

Authorities are hoping surveillance footage from the mall will help investigators identify the suspects.
