ATLANTA (AP) - Police say a man was followed after a bar fight in Atlanta and shot while driving.

Atlanta police Capt. Andrew Senzer tells news outlets that police haven’t nailed down the precise location, but the early Friday shooting took place somewhere between the Whisky Mistress bar and the Hampton Inn, both in Buckhead.

He says the victim left the bar in his Audi after a physical altercation, and at some point the suspect fired one shot, which penetrated the car and struck the victim. Senzer says the injured man had a gun, but there’s no evidence he returned fire.

He drove himself to the Hampton Inn to call for help, and is now in the hospital, where he’s expected to survive.

There are no suspects in custody.
