Three employees of a southeast Atlanta restaurant were robbed as they were leaving work early Tuesday morning with one employee also sustaining a gunshot wound to the leg.

The robbery and shooting happened outside the Flatiron Bar and Restaurant on Flat Shoals Road in Atlanta.

Police say the two women and a man were leaving the restaurant and while walking to their vehicles, four men approached and demanded their belongings. During the incident, the man was shot in the leg and taken to Grady Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The suspects were able to make off with one of the women's purse and were seen leaving the scene in a newer-model black sedan with temporary tags.
