A Conyers police officer opened fire after a suspect in a stolen vehicle rammed a patrol car Tuesday night, according to the GBI.The vehicle was traveling along Iris Drive about 6:45 p.m. when authorities said they discovered it was stolen by using a license plate reader and attempted to stop it.Two Conyers police patrol units followed the vehicle as it pulled into the parking lot of the Microtel Inn & Suites in the 1400 block of Old McDonough Highway.“As the two officers approached, the vehicle backed up and struck a patrol vehicle,” GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles said. “During the incident, one of the officers fired at the vehicle.”It’s not clear if anyone was hit. The stolen vehicle sped from the scene, initiating a chase that ultimately entered DeKalb County. The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office assisted during the pursuit.“Officers lost sight of the vehicle when it turned to go eastbound on I-20 at Evans Mill Road,” Miles said.No officers were injured during the incident, which is the 15th police shooting the GBI has investigated this year.The GBI is investigating an OIS involving Conyers Police and unknown subject(s) driving a stolen vehicle. https://t.co/T0Saz9bfa6 pic.twitter.com/a88mQrMBfj— GA Bureau of Investigation (@GBI_GA) February 12, 2020 The Atlanta Journal-Constitution also tracks officer-involved shootings that don't involve the GBI, and those numbers sometimes differ from the GBI's tally.— Please return to AJC.com for updates.In other news:About the AuthorZachary HansenZachary Hansen, a Georgia native, covers economic development and commercial real estate for the AJC.
