An officer returned fire, but Williams was able to jump into the victim’s vehicle and flee the scene, police said. He later dumped the car about a mile away, on Fairburn Road, and escaped on foot, according to authorities.
The victim, who was shot in the arms and legs, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in stable condition. The officer’s arm injuries were minor, Pickard said. He was treated and released.
Williams is believed to be armed and dangerous. He may be injured as well, police said.
He is wanted on aggravated assault on a police officer and other charges.
