A robbery suspect was shot and wounded by police in the parking lot outside a suburban Atlanta mall on Monday, authorities said.

The suspect was later arrested at a home a few miles from The Gallery at South DeKalb, authorities said. He his wounds were not life-threatening, DeKalb County police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said.

The shooting took place on the last shopping day before Christmas.
