ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - An alleged robbery attempt at a northwest Atlanta gas station sent one man to the hospital.

It happened just after midnight Tuesday inside a gas station on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway.

According to investigators, the man was playing on gaming machines when someone walked in and tried to rob him at gunpoint. A physical dispute ensued which led the assailant to shoot the man multiple times before running away.

The gunman is described as wearing all black. Police tell CBS46 the victim had just won a significant amount of money the day prior to the shooting. It is unclear if the shooter knew this at the time of the alleged robbery.

The investigation remains ongoing.
