UNION CITY, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say a customer at a Waffle House outside Atlanta shot and wounded a suspect who was attempting to rob the restaurant.

Police said the shooting happened early Monday, when a gunman tried to hold up a Waffle House in south Fulton County.

Union City police Det. Gloria Hodgson said the suspect entered the Waffle House on Jonesboro Road just before 2 a.m., "brandishing a pistol and demanding money."

Hodgson said there were no other injuries.
