ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police say a man was wounded by gunfire as he left a back-to-school concert at a city park.

WSB-TV reports police were questioning a possible suspect in the Saturday night shooting at Coan Park. Atlanta police Maj. Darin Schierbaum said the victim had been attending Zone 6 Day, billed as a community event for families and headlined by rapper 21 Savage.

Schierbaum said the event was permitted for about 200 people, but many more showed up.

He said the victim was shot in the ankle and was being treated at a local hospital, and police had detained a person for questioning.
