Atlanta Police are searching for a man who was shot while attempting to rob a homeowner early Sunday morning on Desoto Avenue in southwest Atlanta.

Channel 2’s Ashley Swann spoke with the resident, who asked not to be identified.

He told her he and his roommate were returning home from work when they were approached by two men on their front porch, one of whom had a gun.

"The guy sprang from the ground, over my rail, and was like open your door, open your house door,” he said. “I said, ‘This is it. This is it for me. God just make sure you watch after my mom and my sisters for me.’”
