• Police: Suspect "randomly" shoots at APD officers

    Updated:

    ATLANTA - Atlanta police say they have arrested a man for shooting at a police officer Wednesday afternoon near Sampson Street.

    According to a police spokesman, two officers were parking their patrol car when they heard a gunshot. They then saw a man in a bush with a handgun. The suspect then fired off a few more rounds in their direction and fled on foot.

    The officers followed the suspect up the street and when they confronted him, the suspect put down his gun and surrendered.

    “No idea why. It was random. They have no idea why this guy shot at them yet,” said Atlanta police spokesman Greg Lyon.

    The officers did not fire their weapons. No one was hurt.
