A would-be robber was shot early Monday when he tried to hold up a south Fulton County Waffle House, police said.
Union City police Det. Gloria Hodgson said the suspect entered the Waffle House in the 4300 block of Jonesboro Road just before 2 a.m., “brandishing a pistol and demanding money.”
A customer inside the 24-hour diner shot the robbery suspect, Hodgson said.
The suspect, whose name has not been released, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment. His condition was not immediately available.
Hodgson said there were no other injuries in the incident.
