ATLANTA (AP) - Gunfire erupted near a southwest Atlanta shopping plaza on Thursday afternoon, and two men were founded wounded afterward and taken to a hospital, authorities say.

An Atlanta Police Department spokeswoman, TaSheena Brown, told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that the shots rang out near an area of shops and businesses.

She told the newspaper that one man was found afterward with a gunshot wound to the abdomen along a major thoroughfare and another man was found shot about a block away. The report said police later found 21 bullet casings.

Brown said both men were stable, but she did not elaborate on their injuries.
