LENOX, Ga. — A man has been shot in the chest at a Dollar General store in Georgia.

WALB-TV reports about 20 shots were fired at the store Sunday night in Lenox and the man was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The station quotes Lenox police Chief Shane Daughtrey as saying the man was wounded in a drive-by shooting, but the department hasn’t verified what type of car the shooter drove.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is assisting with the case.
