NewsChopper 2 was over the Sorelle Apartments, where there was a heavy police presence and at least one ambulance.

Atlanta police said the scene is secure and that the shooting does not appear to be random.

The complex is in a busy area near the Lindbergh MARTA station.

The Lindbergh area has seen rising crime in recent years.

A man was shot and killed near the MARTA station last April.

Three people were shot in the nearby Home Depot parking lot after a pool party off Piedmont Road in May. In June, a shootout in broad daylight at a BP gas station at Cheshire Bridge and Lindbergh Drive left two men injured.

A Taco Mac in the area recently shut down permanently over concerns about rising crime and the safety of their employees.
