ATLANTA (AP) - Two people were shot after the attempted robbery of a delivery driver in Atlanta turned into a shootout.

Atlanta police tell news outlets the shooting happened Tuesday night, when a driver delivering Chinese food was stopped by two women in northeast Atlanta and two men then approached from behind.

Police say one of the men shot the driver in the back. The victim returned fire, hitting one of the men in the leg. Officers arrested that man a short distance away from the initial scene.

Police are looking for the two women and the other man.

Both the driver and the arrested suspect suffered not life-threatening injuries.

Police believe robbery was the motive in the initial shooting.
