WOODSTOCK, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a business owner is recovering from burns after police say armed men robbed his store and then set the building on fire.
Police say the crime happened Sunday at a Play N Trade store in the Cherokee County town of Woodstock, just north of Atlanta.
Investigators tell WSB Radio that three to four suspects held up the store and poured gasoline to start the blaze.
Woodstock police Sgt. Randy Milligan says officers found the building on fire when they arrived shortly before noon Sunday.
Antwain Jordan was at the shopping complex and said a cloud of smoke was coming from inside, and the store owner emerged with burns on his legs. Authorities say 42-year-old store owner Troy Braselton was in stable condition at Grady Memorial Hospital.
