Officers were sent to the Midtown restaurant about 3 p.m., according to Johnson. Witnesses told investigators that a man walked into the store and demanded money from a cashier. The man was later identified as Gloston.
It’s not clear if they gave the man any money, but the cashier fled to the back of the store and the suspect left.
As Gloston tried to leave Colony Square, he was confronted by bystanders and witnesses, leading to the gunfire and his capture, Johnson said. He was taken to the Fulton County Jail, where he remains.
Gloston is charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
Police said no one was hurt by the gunfire. No charges have been filed against the bystander who fired the shots, Johnson said.
An investigation is ongoing.
