Atlanta, Georgia

From May 7, 2006 WXIA channel 11 Atlanta:
An Atlanta store owner who was approached by an armed man Sunday afternoon fired on the suspect during a gunbattle in the parking lot of his business, police officials told 11Alive News.

The 25-year-old suspect suffered some gunshot wounds and was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition. His name has not been released.

Authorities said the suspect jumped out of his car about 4 p.m. and ran up on the owner of the Goody's Fashions store on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway, just inside I-285 in Northwest Atlanta. The two got into some kind of gunbattle in the parking lot but only the suspect ended up wounded.

No charges have been filed against the business owner.
