Atlanta Gunman Shot After Firing On Police
Police said one man is in the hospital after an officer-involved shooting in midtown Atlanta on Tuesday night.
Just before midnight, a couple told police they were walking when two men robbed them at 8th and Myrtle Streets.
A short time later, officers spotted the van believed to be involved with the robbery and attempted to pull the driver over, police said. Officials said both men got out of the vehicle and one opened fire.
An officer returned fire, hitting at least one of the two men.
Police said the man who was shot was alert and conscious when he arrived at Grady Memorial Hospital.
The officer was not hurt.
There wasn’t immediate word on the whereabouts of the other suspect.
