The scene following a police chase in Cobb County, Georgia on Monday (FOX 5 Atlanta)
Atlanta’s WSB-TV reported that the most recent attempted robbery unfolded Monday morning in Cherokee County. The report said a Brinks security guard was shot outside of an Atlanta-area medical center. The guard has been listed in stable condition. Police are working to determine if anything was taken during the robbery attempt.
Another theft occurred on Sunday when police in Atlanta said a man shot at a Loomis Security officer after robbing an armored truck. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that it wasn’t clear if that incident was connected with the other armed robberies.
The guard returned fire, but the suspect managed to flee the scene, according to the paper.
Delk said multiple agencies and the FBI had a lookout on the suspect’s vehicle, which was spotted by an officer who attempted to apprehend the driver, FOX 5 reported.
„During that attempt, a Powder Springs officer did fire and strike the suspect,“ Delk said. „He did continue to flee, however, in the vehicle.“
