An officer returned fire, but the passenger was able to jump into the 911 caller’s vehicle and flee, according to police. He bailed out of the second stolen car about a mile away, on Fairburn Road, and escaped on foot.
Jones said Grayson was shot in the arms and legs, and was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition. Investigators had not yet spoken with Grayson late Monday afternoon, a police spokesman said.
The officer that was fired on by the suspect sustained “very minor marks on his right arm as a result of the incident,” Jones said, and was treated for the minor injury and released.
