‘Chaotic’ robbery, shooting at Cobb apartments; 3 arrested

In what police called a “chaotic scene,” three people were arrested after an armed robbery and shootout at a Cobb County apartment complex.

About 30 shots were fired, Channel 2 Action News reported. Vehicles and an apartment not associated with the incident were damaged, according to authorities.

About 5:20 p.m. Saturday, police responded to WestHaven  Apartments at 3100 Paces Station Ridge, Officer Sarah O’Hara said in a statement.

The suspects, like one of the three victims, were from Miami, according to police.

Two armed men went into an apartment and robbed Juan Dolcine, 28, and two unidentified people, police said. A third person waited outside as the getaway driver. 

“During the robbery,” O’Hara said, “the two unidentified victims began shooting at the suspects. The suspects returned fire before leaving the scene in their vehicle.”

Officers found the suspects' vehicle near Mableton Parkway and arrested all three of them. One, who was shot earlier, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Police said the suspects, 33-year-old Bobby Pierre-Louis, 29-year-old Jean Therezie and 32-year-old Cory Saintit, have been charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault.

Three vehicles not involved in the incident were damaged by gunfire, and two vehicles not associated with the shooting were damaged by the suspects' vehicle as it left the scene, O’Hara said. Also,  one apartment not associated with the incident was damaged by gunfire.

“It was a pretty chaotic scene,” O’Hara told Channel 2.

Anyone with knowledge of the incident is asked to call police at 770-499-3945.
