2 Suspects Caught in Atlanta Police Shooting

Two police officers were wounded Friday morning after being shot in a gun battle near the eastern edge of Atlanta, leaving one suspect hospitalized in critical condition, police said.

A second suspected was arrested late Friday morning after dozens of officers, police dogs and helicopters spent hours searching, the Associated Press reported.


Both officers were taken to hospitals with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries, DeKalb County police Capt. Stephen Fore said during a midmorning news conference. One officer was shot in the thigh and the other officer was shot in the calf, he said.

The gunfire and manhunt began around 6:45 a.m. Friday, after police responded to a report of a home invasion in an apartment complex, Fore said.

“They were immediately fired upon,” Fore said.

At least one or possibly two officers shot back, and a suspect was wounded in the process, Fore said. That suspect is listed in critical condition at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Fore said.

Police spent the morning searching for a second suspect. They used police dogs in an effort to track the suspect on the ground as police helicopters circled through the sky.

The second suspect was captured late Friday morning, Fore said. He did not immediately have details on the arrest or the charges against the suspect.

Dozens of police cars crowded the DeKalb County neighborhood, where several roads were closed after the shooting near Interstate 285.

Four schools nearby were placed on lockdown at the request of police: Towers and Columbia high schools; Snapfinger Elementary; and DeKalb Preparatory Academy, DeKalb County Schools spokesman Quinn Hudson said.

Detectives were still trying to sort out exactly what happened during the initial shootout involving the two officers. Police have not released names of the wounded officers or the suspects.

Spokeswomen at Atlanta Medical and at Grady said they could not comment on the situation.
