ATLANTA -- An apparent random gunshot has left a man unconscious - and not breathing - in downtown Atlanta, police told 11Alive Thursday night.

The victim was found shot in the chest in a pickup truck at Cone and Walton streets around 11 p.m. just blocks from the New Years Eve festivities also happening in the city.

Despite the injuries, Atlanta Police Department spokesperson Elizabeth Espy said the victim was transported to Grady Medical Center and is stable.  Investigators are working to provide a followup condition and canvassing the crime scene for witnesses.

Officers in the same lot heard no gunfire.
