It happened at about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday along Ashford-Dunwoody Road.

Police told Channel 2's Shae Rozzi the incident started in the parking lot of the Dunwoody Police Department.

Officers said they started to follow the man because he was driving erratically. The man pulled into an Exxon gas station where he hit several cars, police said.

Police said the man then drove out of the gas station and started heading toward Perimeter Mall. That's when the man started barreling toward two Dunwoody police officers who were directing traffic, police said..

The officer opened fire on the man, hitting him in the torso through the windshield of the man's car.

Police said the man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where he died from his injuries.

The DeKalb County Medical Examiner identified the man as 34-year-old Bradley Almy.

No one else was injured in the incident.
