Crime scene investigators work an officer-involved shooting at the 5600 block of Roswell Road on Monday Oct. 28, 2013, in Sandy Springs. Police said a man attempting to run down a Sandy Springs police officer was shot in the leg by the officer Monday night. The suspect allegedly was driving a stolen car.

Sandy Springs police have filed multiple charges against a man they say tried to run down one of their officers and drove a stolen car into two of their police vehicles.

The suspect, identified as Colin Lee Daves, 18, was shot by one of the officers as the drama unfolded Monday night. Daves was in custody and in St. Joseph’s Hospital on Tuesday morning and moved to the Fulton County Jail late Tuesday night, Sandy Spring police said Wednesday.

Sandy Springs Police Capt. Steve Rose said Daves was at the wheel of a stolen car about 7 p.m. Monday when he was spotted by police in the parking lot of the Prado, 5610 Roswell Road.

Daves tried to elude the officers, struck two Sandy Springs police vehicles and nearly ran down one officer, Rose said.

The officer fired at the car, he said.

Daves later wrecked and abandoned the car on I-285, Rose said.

He later went to St. Joseph’s Hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the leg.

Hospital staff notified Sandy Springs police, who took Daves into custody while he was being treated.

No hearing date is set yet. Davis is charged with several criminal and traffic charges, including aggravated assault, Rose said.
