New video of violent Buckhead robbery

- Police in Atlanta have leads in the attack on a resident in Buckhead.

The images shown in security video outside the SkyHouse luxury apartments are frightening. Three men -- all carrying semi-automatic weapons -- force the resident to the ground between a set of doors and the garage.

The men quickly take possessions, most of them the resident was wearing at the time.

It happened early Saturday morning when young people would be returning from a night out.

Sources told FOX 5 News that police think this was not a random act or so-called crime of opportunity. Investigators believe the gunmen sized up their target -- who may well have been set up.

The victim had many valuables, including a pricey Rolex watch, necklace with diamonds, an iPhone, and hard to find sneakers created by rapper Kanye West.

All of those items were snatched in less than two minutes.

Fortunately for the victim, the gunmen left without firing any shots.
