Four shot near Georgia State campus

ATLANTA -- Police are investigating a quadruple shooting near the Georgia State University campus in downtown Atlanta.

Details are limited at this time but police have said that the shooting resulted from an attempted robbery.

The shooting apparently happened at the J.R. Crickets bar the corner of Forsyth and Poplar streets.

A woman told police her wallet had been stolen and that she was coming back when the shooting happened.

The entire street near the scene has been taped off and a number of police cruisers are visible in the area as police try to piece together exactly what happened.

At this point, it's unclear who started the shooting first but one of them actually attempted to get on a Georgia State University bus after being shot. Our crews at the scene have learned that's when a gun fell out of his pocket. 

That's when police got involved and got all three injured persons in ambulances and taken to an area hospital.

All three suffered what police are calling non life-threatening injuries to the lower extremities.
