 ATLANTA (AP) Police say a man described as wearing an ``angry clown mask'' shot a customer at a Waffle House in Atlanta. 

News outlets report the customer was taken to a hospital in stable condition after being shot in the neck Tuesday. 

Police say a man was seen pacing in the parking lot. That man then entered the restaurant's restroom. 

Capt. Andrew Senzer says the man exited the restroom with the mask on, produced a gun and essentially demanded the belongings of the people in the restaurant. 

Police say the man grabbed the cash register and made his way out in a vehicle. The gunman also fired back into the store, striking the victim in the neck. 

Police say the car was found but the suspect is still on the run.
